Atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis - Olilab

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that usually begins in early childhood in the first six months of newborn babies but also affects a significant number of adults.


Atopic dermatitis in a child can sometimes get worse over time, but it is complicated and can be aggravated. Often, dermatitis disappears as the child grows, although some children still experience atopic dermatitis at an adult age. It is usually associated with elevated levels of immunoglobulin E (IgE). It is the first disease that has appeared in a series of allergic diseases - including food allergies, asthma, and allergic rhinitis.

What causes atopic dermatitis?

We do not know the exact cause of atopic dermatitis. Scientists know that dermatitis is the result of a combination of genetics and environmental factors. When something outside the body triggers an immune system, the skin cells do not behave as they should. The skin begins to redden and it takes the form of inflammation.

It is also known that atopic dermatitis occurs within the family, but there is no known how to relocate from the parent to the children. If one parent has AD, asthma or fever, there is a 50% chance that their child will have at least one of these diseases. If both parents have one or more of these diseases, chances are much bigger that their child will have problems too.

Symptoms and signs of disease

Continuous skin itching is the only symptom of atopy. The disease usually has occasional bursts of intensity and return. If you often feel itching, it is recommended to avoid irritation of the affected parts of the body, as this only increases inflammation.
