Atopic Dermatitis: Diagnosis and Treatment

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic relapsing and remitting inflammatory skin disease that causes intensely pruritic skin lesions. Maintenance therapy consists of liberal use of emollients and daily bathing with soap-free cleansers. Use of topical corticosteroids is the first-line treatment for flare-ups, with or without the addition of a calcineurin inhibitor. Ultraviolet phototherapy is a safe and effective second-line treatment for moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.
