Prevention is the mainstay of treatment for atopic dermatitis. If secondary infection is present, initiate antibiotic therapy along with measures to control inflammation.
No cure exists, but exacerbations can be minimized with proper skin care. Take short baths or showers in lukewarm water and limit the use of soap on axilla, groin, and feet. Bath on alternate days during the winter. Liberal use of a good skin moisturizer cannot be overemphasized, especially in winter and immediately after bathing or swimming. Minimize contact with cosmetics, deodorants, detergents, solvents, or other known triggers.
Treat acute attacks with a low-to-moderate potency topical corticosteroid. Generic over-the-counter hydrocortisone (1%) often is sufficient. Hydrocortisone 2.5% is available by prescription. There are adverse effects of topical steroids (eg, atrophy, hypopigmentation, striae, telangiectasia, thinning of the skin). Medium-to-high potency topical steroids should not be used on the face or neck area because of these potential adverse effects.
