Atopic dermatitis in children and adults

Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. In this webinar, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for atopic dermatitis in both children and adults. Atopic dermatitis is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. People with a family history of eczema, asthma, or hay fever are more likely to develop atopic dermatitis. Environmental factors such as exposure to irritants, stress, and changes in temperature can also trigger eczema. In severe cases, the skin may become cracked, weepy, and infected. It is also common for people with eczema to have trouble sleeping due to the constant itching and discomfort. Topical treatments, such as corticosteroids and moisturizers, are usually the first line of defense against eczema. Oral medications, such as antihistamines and immunosuppressants, may be prescribed for severe cases. Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, uses UV light to reduce inflammation and itching.
