Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic inflammatory condition that impacts your skin barrier.

If you have eczema, you might experience flares. This is when your skin is dry, itchy, flaky, and painful. Flares can happen in response to triggers, like irritating detergents or even stress, or for no apparent reason at all.

You can take steps to manage these symptoms. This may include:

  • following your treatment plan
  • applying moisturizer regularly
  • avoiding known triggers
  • using wet wraps
  • using skin care and laundry products created for sensitive skin

Eczema has no known cure, so developing an effective treatment regimen is key to keeping symptoms at bay.
