Eczema / Atopic Dermatitis
  • Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic itchy
    inflammatory skin disorder that affects about 10
    of children to some extent. Many children with AD
    develop other symptoms of atopy such as food
    allergies, asthma, and allergic rhinitis
    (hayfever). When inhaled or ingested allergens
    enter the bloodstream they can be carried to the
    skin, where they induce a chronic inflammation --
    know as atopic dermatitis in sensitized
    (atopic) individuals who possess T cells and IgE
    specific for an allergen. Allergens that act by
    direct skin contact can also incite inflammation.
    The immunologic response of the skin to antigen
    is complex, resulting in inflammation and
    localized tissue destruction. This chronic
    inflammation is called eczema and is the most
    prominent symptom of atopic dermatitis.
  • DiagnosisHistory in infancy, clinical findings
    (typical distribution sites, morphology of
    lesions, while dermatographism).
