Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that frequently occurs in subjects with a personal or family history of other atopic conditions, such as asthma or allergic rhinitis. The prevalence is high especially among children, and has considerably increased in recent decades. Patients and families need to understand that a single cause and treatment are unlikely to be found, but a good control is nearly always possible. It is indeed very important to treat every case of AD, without disregarding the mild forms. Treating mild forms of AD is essential to prevent disease worsening, reduce the risk of bacterial and viral complications, and possibly prevent the development of asthma and allergic rhinitis.

Abstract

Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that frequently occurs in subjects with a personal or family history of other atopic conditions, such as asthma or allergic rhinitis. The prevalence is high especially among children, and has considerably increased in recent decades. Patients and families need to understand that a single cause and treatment are unlikely to be found, but a good control is nearly always possible. It is indeed very important to treat every case of AD, without disregarding the mild forms. Treating mild forms of AD is essential to prevent disease worsening, reduce the risk of bacterial and viral complications, and possibly prevent the development of asthma and allergic rhinitis.
