Info on Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a type of noncontagious skin rash. It is often made worse by allergens like wool or pet hair. Typically, the condition starts in early childhood and continues into the teen years. Although most people will stop having severe symptoms when they become adults, they will usually continue to have mild symptoms and sensitive skin.
 
Life can be frustrating and stressful for those living with atopic dermatitis, and quality of life can be affected. However, by being aware of symptoms and their triggers -- and by having good communication with your healthcare team -- it's possible to find a treatment program that both meets your needs and adapts to any changes.
