Excellent skin care is the cornerstone of
Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema management
Remember that Atopic Dermatitis skin is not normal skin. The architecture of Atopic Dermatitis skin is disrupted and has lots of “holes” in the skin barrier. As a result, allergens, bacteria and irritants can get into the holes of the skin and cause flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis. It is important to maintain excellent skin care with barrier cream application, avoidance of triggers and avoidance of scratching.
