Atopic Dermatitis Resources

Midwest Allergy Sinus Asthma, SC

Atopic Dermatitis is the most common form of eczema and is a chronic condition. Symptoms of atopic dermatitis include, but are not limited to, itchiness, redness, rash, dry/scaly skin, and open/crusted/weepy sores. If the skin becomes infected, it may form a yellowed crust or pus-filled bumps. The skin may also become thicker and calloused from excessive scratching and rubbing.

It is estimated that more than 18 million adults in the United States have atopic dermatitis. Children tend to develop the condition either in infancy or early childhood, but the condition can appear at any time in a person’s life. Those who come from families with a history of atopic dermatitis, asthma, or hay fever are at greater risk of developing this condition.

Seek medical treatment and advice from your doctor if you suspect you may have this condition.
