Nonpharmacologic Strategies and Topical Agents for Treating Atopic Dermatitis: An Update
The signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis can be safely and effectively controlled in most patients; in many cases, the disease can be improved to the point that signs and symptoms are absent or minimal. In addition, flares can be effectively controlled and, in some cases, prevented. New topical medications, improved strategies for the use of topical corticosteroids and topical calcineurin inhibitors, and judicious use of nonpharmacologic regimens—including bathing, bleach baths, and early use of emollients—have led to better disease management and improved quality of life for patients and their families.
