Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic eczema (dermatitis); is a recurrent skin disease which is more common in young children with skin dryness, rashes and itching, and with occasional exacerbations and improvements. Most individuals with atopic eczema have a history of allergic disease such as allergic asthma, hay fever, or their family. This disease often occurs with infancy and after a certain age the symptoms are alleviated and subsequently disappear.

House dust mites, pollen, grass, detergents, soap, disinfectants, softeners, seasonal changes, eggs, cow's milk, hazelnuts, peanuts and stress can trigger attacks of atopic dermatitis.

The most important finding of atopic dermatitis is severe itching. Along with pruritus, it is seen in the joints of children especially in children. Your doctor will help you spend the most safe and comfortable way by prescribing appropriate medicines to your child's skin. Moisturizers, steroid creams, immunomodulators and antihistamines are used in the treatment of this disease. With appropriate treatment, the majority of patients can be controlled.
