10 best creams for atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis is a frightening diagnosis that can terrify any mother of a baby. No matter how sad it may sound, chronic allergic dermatitis in 75% of cases occurs in children under one year old. However, the manifestation of signs of AD, as it is also called, can also manifest itself in a preschool child. 90% of children under 7 years old are prone to this disease.
Usually, an unpleasant skin rash appears in people who are genetically predisposed to atopy — the collective name for all manifestations of allergic reactions (this also includes hives, and eczema, and pollinosis and other diseases). The disease is characterized by rashes, increased hypersensitivity to non-allergens. In the summer it proceeds calmly, with the observation of remission, in the cold season it becomes aggravated.

When compiling a treatment card, a competent doctor must pay attention not only to antihistamines, without which it is impossible to do without any manifestations of an allergic reaction, but also to skin moisturizers. They will be able to reduce itching and soothe the child.
