Atopic dermatitis, often known as eczema, is a condition that causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.. Although it can happen to anybody, it is more frequent in young children. Atopic dermatitis is persistent (chronic) and occasionally flares up. Although it is not contagious, it can be unpleasant.
Atopic dermatitis patients run the risk of acquiring asthma, hay fever, and food allergies.
Regular moisturizing and other skin care practices help reduce irritation and stop new breakouts (flares).
Atopic dermatitis is a mutation in a gene that affects certain people’s ability to have protective skin. A poor barrier function affects a skin’s capacity to hold onto water and protect against illnesses, allergens, allergies, and environmental factors like cigarette smoke.
Other people’s atopic dermatitis is brought on by an overgrowth of Staphylococcus aurous on their skin. This disrupts the skin’s barrier function and drives harmful bacteria away.Our doctors at Radiance Skin and Hair clinic ask you about the signs, look at your skin, and go over your medical history in order to identify atopic dermatitis. To diagnose allergies as well as rule out additional skin disorders, we also perform tests.
