Definition of atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis represents a skin condition whose symptoms are: inflammation, redness, intense itching sensation, change in the aspect and elasticity of skin. Most of the times, evolution is chronic. Atopic dermatitis affects first of all children but it may occur at any age. Studies show that 10-20% of the children and 1-3% of the adults present a form of atopic dermatitis, and the incidence of the disease has an increase proportional to the degree of development of the country.
Diagnosis of atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis is a condition whose etiology is not fully known. It is considered to be a condition provoked by several factors that include: - side effects of vaccines; – hereditary or familial predisposition; – skin toxicity with various cleaning or care products; – immunological anomalies; – stress and mental exhaustion; – hay fever, asthma or allergic predisposition; – allergy to certain foods or products; – local or systemic use of immunosuppressive drugs (antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, etc.) Being an atypical condition, diagnosis is decided based on a detailed medical history of the patient, based on careful observation of the lesion and eventually based on the microscopic analysis of the samples collected from the skin.
Treatment of atopic dermatitis
As treatment we commend the topical use of Epitelin cream 2-3 times per day, up to the disappearance of the lesion. Moreover, we recommend several additional measures which may accelerate the healing of dermatitis:
- body detoxification;
- avoidance of any allergen factors;
- cleaning skin with Epitelin cream which restores the protective barrier of the skin;
- exposure to sun rays in the morning before 11:00 a.m. May have very beneficial effects upon dermatitis.
