  • Let me help you

  • Oh thank you Amy !

  • No no no let me help you

  • Thank you

  • You're welcome

  • So Amy

  • what is atopic dermatitis

  • Can you elaborate a little bit more

  • Atopic dermatitis is a most common type of eczema

  • For many complex reasons

  • our immune system become disordered and overactive

  • This causes inflammation and damages our skin

  • Our skin becomes dry and prone to itching

  • Atopic dermatitis is also commonly associated with

  • Respiratory allergies

  • like allergic rhinitis ans asthma

  • So what are the triggering factors ?

  • Some common triggers include

  • cold and dry weather

  • heat, humidity, sweat and air pollution

  • Food triggers include

  • soy, egg,milk,gluten or nuts

  • So which age group is the most susceptible to this ?

  • So atopic dermatitis often begins before the age of 5

  • and may persist into adolescence and adulthood

  • The area of skin rash depends on the age group

  • In babes and younger children

  • it commonly affects the scalp

  • face and the front parts of the arms and legs

  • In older children and adults

  • It's mostly the flexural areas

  • For example neck inside of the elbows

  • and back of the knees

  • Seems like adults have moderate symptom

  • How is it treated ?

  • Skin hydration is the most important step

  • Try to moisturize at least twice daily

  • especially after shower

  • Avoid triggers that worsens the skin condition

  • including sweat, dust mites, pollen and stress

  • So, will the ordinary moisturizing lotion work ?

  • So we usually prescribe topical steroid

  • to relieve the redness, swelling and itching

  • If a larger area of skin is involved

  • we also give oral anti-itch medication

  • to avoid the vicious itch and scratch cycle

  • Other treatments include phototherapy and wet dressings

  • Scratching sometimes leads to skin infection

  • In that case

  • we also give oral or topical antibiotics

  • Thank you, Amy

  • Now I know how to do when winter come

  • I'm ready
