Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
Updated: Sep 15, 2020
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory condition that makes skin red and itchy, and can come and go for years or throughout life. "In people with AD the immune system becomes disordered and overactive. This triggers inflammation that damages the skin barrier, leaving it dry and prone to rashes, itching, redness in lighter skin tones or a purple, brown or grayish hue in darker skin tones" (National Eczema Association).
