Abstract

Long-term adherence to carefully developed, individualized strategies is necessary for the optimum treatment outcomes in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). However, the parents of children with AD frequently lack sufficient information about the disease and its treatment, hold incorrect and sometimes harmful beliefs about these issues, and too often do not follow through consistently with the treatment plan. The health care provider is the primary source of such education, so an effective provider relationship is fundamental to adherence. In addition to the provision of correct information and the correction of misinformation, clinicians must be aware of and must address barriers to adherence with AD therapy, especially parent anxiety about the safety of topical medications (corticosteroids and topical calcineurin inhibitors).
