Atopic dermatitis is the scientific term for eczema – a red, itchy rash that can appear anywhere on the body. Although it is common among babies and children, it can occur at any age.
If you think you or a family member has atopic dermatitis, it is important to see your doctor to be properly diagnosed and to discuss treatment options. Even though the condition is chronic, treatments are available that can help you to manage flare-ups and improve your quality of life.
