ATOPIC DERMATITIS

 

What Is Atopic Dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema, is a chronic skin problem that causes dry skin, intense itching, and a red, raised rash. In severe cases, the rash forms clear, fluid-filled blisters. Atopic dermatitis is more common in babies and children, although adults may develop atopic dermatitis, too. It is not clear what causes atopic dermatitis, but people who have the skin problem often have a sensitive immune system and suffer from allergies and asthma. 

This is a common skin disease in children. It is so common that people have given it a few names:

  • Eczema (name most people use)

  • Dermatitis

  • Atopic (a-top-ic) eczema

  • Atopic dermatitis

 

To avoid confusion, we’ll use the medical term atopic dermatitis.

Children often get atopic dermatitis (AD) during their first year of life. If a child gets AD during this time, dry and scaly patches appear on the skin. These patches often appear on the scalp, forehead, and face. These patches are very common on the cheeks.

No matter where it appears, AD is often very itchy. Infants may rub their skin against bedding or carpeting to relieve the itch.

In children of all ages, the itch can be so intense that a child cannot sleep. Scratching can lead to a skin infection.
