Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)
Ages 18 and up. Qualifying patients will have moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).
Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that's common in young children, but can occur at any age. It may cause itchiness, dry skin, rashes, scaly patches, thickening of the skin, blisters, and skin infections. This condition can weaken your skin’s barrier function, which helps your skin retain moisture and protects your body from outside elements. While there is no cure for eczema, dermatologists specialize in managing its symptoms through various treatments.
