Abstract

Treatment options for children with atopic dermatitis (AD) include environmental modifications, corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and some less frequently used alternative therapies. Treatment of AD is a multifaceted approach that requires avoidance of specific triggers and irritants, repair and maintenance of the stratum corneum, cessation of the itch-scratch cycle, and reduction of inflammation.
