Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema is a chronic skin condition that is estimated to affect between 10-20% of children but often appears in adults as well, particularly the elderly. Although there is no known cure for atopic dermatitis, flare-ups can nearly always be minimized and sometimes prevented, and recent research has identified factors involved in its development that may lead to new treatments to control it more effectively. We are exploring the different types of atopic dermatitis, discussing their unique causes, symptoms and treatments with Dr. Zelma Chiesa Fuxench from University of Pennsylvania. RSVP here!
