Abstract

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by intense pruritus and frequent relapsing courses. It occurs mostly in patients who have a personal or family history of other atopic conditions, such as asthma or allergic rhinitis. The prevalence of AD is high, particularly in children, with rapidly increasing numbers in the past few decades. The chronicity of this disease, along with its relapsing nature, presents treatment and management challenges for clinicians and frustration for patients and their families.
