Atopic dermatitis is a chronic type of eczema. It’s a very frequently occurring illness, which can be treated but isn’t always easy to keep in check. Atopic dermatitis can impact your life in different ways. Maintaining an overview of how you manage your illness in all respects – including visible signs on skin, symptoms, such as the itch and pain, and the general quality of life – can help your doctor monitor your body’s response to treatment, devise an optimal healthcare plan and set realistic treatment goals for you.
