Atopic dermatitis (AD), or atopic eczema, is a chronic, recurring skin disorder. This condition usually occurs in people who have asthma, hay fever, or food allergies or have family members who have these disorders. AD results in dry, easily irritated, itchy skin and usually leads to rubbing and scratching. When your skin is dry, it is not because it lacks grease or oil, but because it fails to retain water. For this reason, it is important to recognize this and to practice the basic principles of "soak and seal" to achieve good skin care daily.
