Atopic Dermatitis and Tips to Deal with It

MBBS, MD - Dermatology

Atopic Dermatitis and Tips to Deal with It

Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin disease that most commonly affects children during their first year of life. This is also commonly noted in older children and occasionally in adults. This disease causes severe itching that many a times leads to skin infection. These rashes are commonly seen over the scalp, neck, cheeks and face. As the child grows older and also in adults, the rashes mainly appear in body creases and folds.

Aetiology

The exact cause of atopic dermatitis is still under research, but it is believed that people with the following are at risk of getting atopic dermatitis

  1. People with asthma or hay fever

  2. Living in cities and in cold climate

  3. Family history of dermatitis

Dermatitis is not caused by food allergies, but people with dermatitis are allergic to certain type of food like milk and other dairy products, shellfish and nuts.

Symptoms

  1. Dry itchy and scaly skin

  2. Redness and rashes

  3. Scratching and itching

  4. Appears bumpy and develop knots in thickened areas

Treatment

It’s important to visit the dermatologist for treatment to control the disease and prevent it from worsening. Treatment includes medicines to control itching, reduce skin inflammation (redness and swelling) and clear infection

Prevent Relapse

The dermatologist will also suggest lifestyle modifications, which are very important to manage the disease.

Tips for people with Dermatitis

1. Ways to ease discomfort:

  • Make sure the humidity and temperature levels are comfortable.

  • Apply moisturizer twice daily to make sure the skin does not get dry and cracks.

  • Enquire your doctor about how to use wet wrap therapy and its effects.

  • Make sure your child’s finger nails are cut short and smooth.

2. Bathing care:

  • Bath your child with warm water not with hot water and make sure you complete the bath within 5-10 mins.

  • Just pat the skin after bath with soft cotton towels and don’t make it dry completely.

  • Apply the medicine if advised after bath. Make sure you apply the medicine before the skin gets completely dry.

  • Apply moisturizer over the medicated skin.

  • Avoid bubble bath and prefer bleach bath every two days if the skin gets infected.

3. Wash clothes the right way:

  • Uses limited amount of detergents to wash the clothes.

  • Rinse the clothes with adequate amount of water and dry it completely under direct sunlight.

  • Wash new clothes with plain water before wearing to your child to remove excess dyes and fragrances. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

My face is so oily and I want oil free skin and glow on my face so what can I do for it.

My face is so oily and I want oil free skin and glow on my face so what can I do for it.
Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area.

How can I get rid of dark circles? and how to increase weight? Is dis norml weight of mine or not?
Hi Lybrate user Dark circles results from various causes such as -lack of hemoglobin -lack of sleep -stress -allergies -due to medications -skin conditions like lichen planus pigmentosus etc. Most important factor in treatment is to eliminate the cause. Some creams and peels can be done to reduce their appearance but can be advised only after examination. You could send me a picture through a private consult or show to a dermatologist for the same. Hope this helps.
