information about the disease dermatitis (skin inflammation).

DEFINITION
Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema) is a chronic inflammation of the upper layer of the skin that causes
intense itching; often occurs in patients with allergic rhinitis or asthma sufferers and to people
who have family members who suffer from allergic rhinitis or asthma.

CAUSE
Patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema) usually also have other allergic diseases.
The relationship between the dermatitis and allergic diseases is not clear; some people have a
tendency that are lowered to produce excessive antibodies (eg immunoglobulin E) in response to
a number of different stimuli.

Various circumstances can exacerbate atopic dermatitis:
1 Emotional stress
2 Changes in temperature or humidity
3 Skin infections by bacteria
4 Contact with fabrics that are irritants (especially wool).
 In some children, food allergies can trigger the occurrence of atopic dermatitis.

On the face, scalp, diaper-covered area, hands, arms, feet or legs formed space baby scab red and
watery.
Dermatitis is often disappeared at the age of 3-4 years, although it will usually reappear.

In children and adults, the rash appears and relapse often only on one or several regions,
especially the upper arms, elbows on the front or back of the knee.

Color, intensity and location of the rash varies, but always cause itching.
The itching often leads to uncontrollable scratching so that his illness worsened.
Raking and scrubbing also can rip the skin and creates the entrance to the bacteria resulting in
infection.

their 20s and 30s years.

lightweight, can cause serious illness and high fever in the form of eczema (eczema herpetikum).

sufferers in the family.

TREATMENT
Corticosteroid creams or ointments can reduce and control itching rash eczema.
Corticosteroid creams are applied to large areas or long-term use can cause serious health
problems, because the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream.
If the cream or ointment is not effective anymore, then replaced by petroleum jelly for a week or
more. Jelly rubbed oil or vegetable oil can help maintain skin smoothness and moisture.
If used again after its use was stopped for a moment, corticosteroids to be effective again.

In some patients, the rash got worse after their bath, even soap and water causes the skin to
become dry and scrub with a towel can cause irritation.
Because it is less often recommended for bathing, not too strong rubbing the skin with a towel
and apply oil or grease that does not smell (eg skin moisturizing cream).

Antihistamines (diphenhydramine, hydroxizini) can control itching, especially with sedatifnya
effect.

Fingernails should be kept short to reduce skin damage from scratching and reduce the likelihood
of infection.

red skin, swelling, there are red streaks and fever).
If there is infection, antibiotics are given.

Corticosteroid tablets and capsules can cause serious side effects, because it is used only as a last
resort in cases of stubborn.
These drugs can cause poor growth, bone weakness, suppression of the adrenal glands and other
problems, especially in children. Moreover, its beneficial effects were short-lived.

In the adult can be done therapy with psoralen plus ultraviolet light oral dose.

PREVENTION
Avoiding dry skin may be one factor in helping to prevent future attacks of dermatitis. These tips
can help you minimize the drying effects of bathing on your skin:
1 Frequency of bathing.
Most people who are prone to atopic dermatitis do not need a bath every day. Try one or two
days without bathing. When you do bathe, limit yourself to only 15 to 20 minutes, and use warm
water, not hot. Using bath oils can also help.

2 Use only certain soaps or synthetic detergents.
Choose mild soaps that clean without excessively removing natural oils. Deodorant and
antibacterial soaps may membuatlebih dry your skin. Use soap only on the face, underarms,
genital areas, hands and feet. Use clean water elsewhere.

3 Dry yourself carefully.
Wipe your skin quickly with the palm of your hand, or gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel
after a shower.

4 Moisturize your skin.
Moisturizers hold water so that your skin is not lost. Thick moisturizer works well. You may also
want to use cosmetics that contain moisturizers. If your skin is very dry, you may want to use oil,
like baby oil, while your skin is still wet. Oil has more staying power than moisturizers prevent
water evaporation from the surface of your skin
