Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema affecting 5% of the population. It affects the upper layer of the skin and typically appears in early childhood. For some patients, it clears up before adulthood, while others have the condition throughout their life. Symptoms for atopic dermatitis are itchy rash, inflammation, and dry skin, and is currently diagnosed by a physical examination and medical history. Upon diagnosis, moisturizers or topical steroids are often used as the first-line of treatment for mild cases, while severe cases may receive biologicals and oral treatments.
