How to choose an emollient?
"Atopic person's skin should not be dry even for a minute!" — all adult patients and parents of children suffering from atopic dermatitis know that.  Therefore, the skin needs to have special moisturizing and softening cosmetics – emollients – applied very often. But pharmacies sell a whole lot of creams, lotions, and gels that promise to moisturize the skin. How and what to choose?
How to properly dose topical corticosteroids
It is known that the main method of treating atopic dermatitis is the use of Topical Glucocorticosteroids (TCS) – hormonal drugs in the form of ointments or creams. For skin inflammation, it's essential to rely on these topical treatments. Especially during flare-ups of the disease, TCS can effectively and swiftly address the inflammation.
Personal treatment plan for atopic dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis manifests uniquely in each individual. As such, both skin care and treatment require a personalized approach.

Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin disease that requires consistent care. During remission, it's crucial to frequently apply emollients (moisturizing and softening creams) to uphold the skin's protective function. However, during exacerbation phases, cosmetic products alone may not be sufficient for areas with inflammation, necessitating the use of medicated creams or ointments.
