Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common of the chronic inflammatory skin diseases, and it is associated with a poor quality of life. These issues are especially salient for pediatric patients, who are frequently affected. Although practitioners often focus on systemic treatments, AD requires a holistic approach.

Although AD is persistent and sometimes difficult to treat, many effective options are available.
