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 research, discovery, and the optimal care for patients with eczema.

IEC Resources on Atopic Dermatitis

The IEC is comprised of some of the leading experts in the field of Atopic Dermatitis, dedicated to increasing the understanding of atopic dermatitis and promoting its optimal management through research, education, and patient/family care.  With the support of these Councilors and Associates, we have developed a number of useful resources on timely and relevant topics in AD.
