Working Together to Promote Education and Research for Atopic Dermatitis

More than 30 million Americans live with atopic dermatitis--the skin condition commonly called eczema. There is currently no cure for eczema, although there are therapies available to reduce the inflammation, dryness, and associated itch, improving quality of life. But better therapies are needed and, although the causes of eczema are still not fully understood, much progress has been made in the last decade. Through continued focus on better understanding eczema, the way toward improved treatment approaches will be paved.

The International Eczema Council (IEC) brings together scientists and physicians dedicated to improving patient care by promoting research, education, and best practices in treatment for atopic dermatitis in people worldwide.
