Atopic dermatitis is a disease of genetic origin. AD is a chronic inflammation of skin which does not affect the entire body and is usually located at typical sites such as the nape of the neck, popliteal and cubital fossae, and feet). Sometimes, itching blisters may occur on hands.
AD is considered a civilization disease due to the increasing trend in incidence rates observed in recent years; the condition becomes quite common and is frequently diagnosed in medical evaluations.
The dermatologists at Medicus Self are experienced in treating patients with atopic dermatitis, and the disorder is diagnosed on the basis of clinical symptoms such as itching, chronic and recurrent course of the disease, characteristic morphology and location of lesions, and history or family history of atopic dermatitis.
Atopic dermatitis may remit during puberty although patients remain prone to skin dryness. Atopic dermatitis may be accompanied by other disorders including bronchial asthma, seasonal or chronic hay fever, and allergic conjunctivitis.
Atopic dermatitis affects about 10% of adults and as much as 20% of children. The disease is often accompanied by additional disorders such as lower self-esteem or depression, sometimes leading to loss of personal or professional relationships. Public awareness of the disease may be very helpful for those affected. Since education is an important factor in awareness building, we encourage those close to AD patients to attend a visit so that they may get to know the disease not only as reported by the patient themselves, but also from a physician who would explain the peculiarities of dealing with the disease.
Atopic dermatitis requires daily care using hydrating, greasing and soothing products chosen by the dermatologist as part of the Medicus Self treatment plan.
