Atopic Dermatitis Directory

Atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema, is a chronic skin problem that causes dry skin, intense itching, and a red, raised rash. In severe cases, the rash forms clear, fluid-filled blisters.

It is not clear what causes atopic dermatitis, but people who have the skin problem often have a sensitive immune system and suffer from allergies and asthma.
