Atopic dermatitis (eczema)

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is most of the time a genetic defect of the skin barrier. The skin is usually dry, very itchy and inflamed, which can be influenced by different trigger factors. An allergy to food or inhalant allergens such as dust mites, animal hair or pollen is not the cause of atopic dermatitis but could be one of the many contributing factors. The therapy consists mainly in basic care including moisturizers and oils for the skin and anti-inflammatory treatment with cortisone-based cream or calcineurin-inhibitors (elidel®, protopic®) adapted for children
