Atopic dermatitis is a chronic eczematous skin disease of varying types, who’s predisposition is inherited. Patients with atopic dermatitis have “super sensitive” skin and a decreased threshold for irritation. It is primarily suspected to be caused by a misguided immune response and presents itself as thickened, elevated plaques of scaling skin. In addition to which, dry skin is a very common complaint in almost all those afflicted with atopic dermatitis.

Although atopic dermatitis can occur in any age, most often it affects infants and young children. Occasionally, it may persist into adulthood or may rarely appear at that time. Some patients tend to have a protracted course with ups and downs. In most cases, there are periods of time when the disease is worse, called exacerbations or flares, which are followed by periods when the skin improves or clears up entirely.

Multiple factors can trigger or worsen atopic dermatitis, including low humidity, seasonal allergies, exposure to harsh soaps and detergents, and cold weather, emotional factors and stress may sometimes exacerbate the condition, and these factors can activate symptoms of atopic dermatitis at any time in the lives of individuals who have inherited the atopic disease trait.

Prevention of atopic dermatitis:

  1. In severe itching, the patient should be immersed in the bath for 20 minutes until the finger tips become pruned. To ease itching and soften the skin, some water emollients may be added to the bathing water. Some of these include oat-derived colloids or mineral or vegetable oils. For washing a sponge or terrycloth may be used that does not cause irritation or friction of the skin.
  2. The soaps used should be of an acidic pH. Harsh soaps tend to be alkaline. The soaps should be devoid of irritant substances and fragrance. Soaps cannot be avoided altogether since they also possess antibacterial property preventing infections. For this purpose soaps for sensitive skin is better.
  3. After bathing the skin should be dried carefully with soft towels and without rubbing, followed by application of emollients Luke liquid paraffin, coconut oil, aloevera which acts as a natural coolant and anti-inflammatory, etc is beneficial to relieve the symptoms.
  4. Clothing should be light and not tight fitting. There should be neither wool nor synthetic textile fibres, Preferably cotton. As loose clothes help in prevention of irritation and itching which aggravates the symptoms and helps in preventing moisture from being removed from skin layer.
  5. Avoidance of foods that trigger allergies also help keep flare ups at bay. Salt therapy is an alternative which helps develop strong immunity and prevent allergic reaction and helps you gain better resistance to Remission thus not affecting your daily activities.
  6. Emotions and stress may bring about flare ups by increasing itching and scratching. Management of stress helps cope better with atopic dermatitis.
