Atopic dermatitis, also called eczema, is a common and chronic skin condition in which the skin appears inflamed, red, itchy and dry. Atopic dermatitis is most likely caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
In children with eczema, the skin barrier is broken down and therefore the skin loses moisture more easily, becoming more dry, easily irritated, and hypersensitive. The skin is also more prone to infection. Eczema usually starts as a dry red rash on the cheeks and around the mouth, then as children grow older, the rash appears on the body. Teenagers often have eczema on elbows, knees, hands, feet, and around the eyes.
There is no cure for Atopic Dermatitis but Dr. Heidi can definitely help you manage your child’s eczema to minimize their outbreaks of rash and increase their quality of life.
