Atopic Dermatitis is an eczematous disease causing immense pain and discomfort. Those suffering from this condition have extremely dry skin that cannot hold moisture and becomes itchy and highly sensitive. Oozing plaques of itching skin is one of the characteristic symptoms of this ailment.
We have treated hundreds of patients over the years at Asthma & Allergy Care P.C., and our experience tells that Atopic Dermatitis usually develops in the very first year of one’s life and continues into childhood, if not treated properly. At times, the problem becomes worse and healing takes a long time. Remission may stay for weeks, months, and sometimes, even years. Some kids may have it even in their adulthood.
What Worsens the Symptoms?
At Asthma & Allergy Care P.C., we advise our patients to keep away from allergens like animal dander and dust mites as they may aggravate the symptoms. If you are having Atopic Dermatitis, extreme cold and dry weather can turn out to be dangerous for your skin. Stop using harsh detergents and soaps. It is better if you do not have food items like prawns, eggs, milk, soy, fish or peanuts that are said to cause allergies.
What Our Experts Recommend
Our veteran dermatologists offering Atopic dermatitis treatment in Denville often advise the patients to take a lukewarm bath and then apply a generous amount of high quality moisturizer or white petroleum jelly in the affected areas of the skin to keep the it hydrated and soothe its burning sensation. Our skin specialists believe that bathing with lukewarm water adding emulsifying oils in it will be equally effective in hydrating the skin, driving away the dryness. We ask our patients to leave the body wet following a bath.
Apart from hydrating the skin, we often prescribe topical steroids that help in assuaging the discomfort. Moisturizing the skin along with administration of topical steroids can offer excellent results.
