What Is Atopic Dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis is a specific form of eczema causing severe itching with a raised rash. These rashes can sometimes develop into long-lasting blisters that chronically reappear near the face, arms, and knees. Itching and dry patches can become so intense that they disrupt sleep, and excessive scratching can lead to infection. Atopic dermatitis mostly affects infants and children, but the condition can appear in patients of all ages.

What Are the Treatments for Atopic Dermatitis?

While atopic dermatitis is historically hard to treat, modern technology has made significant progress toward relief. Initial treatments for this condition may include topical or oral steroids, as well as oral antihistamines. Oral medications can reduce side effects and bring comfort, becoming a life-changing treatment for those with severe eczema.

The XTRAC® Excimer is an FDA-cleared skin resurfacing laser that relieves psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and vitiligo (sometimes also known as leukoderma). The laser uses an intense beam of focused light to target dry, scaly skin without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. XTRAC laser therapy helps patients enjoy long-lasting, measurable results on the scalp, hands, and feet.
