Personal treatment plan for atopic dermatitis

Reading time: 3 min

Atopic dermatitis manifests uniquely in each individual. As such, both skin care and treatment require a personalized approach.


Atopic patients must use specialized cosmetics for a long time, such as soap, shower gel, emollient, soothing cream. During an exacerbation they should apply specific medications to different affected areas of the skin.

So, as in any complex case, atopic dermatitis requires a structured action plan. And it's best to write it down, because you can forget or mix something up.

Various international associations of patients and doctors offer to fill out Eczema Action Plans. They detail individual prescriptions and doctor's recommendations regarding skin care, the use of medications, and trigger avoidance. Such memos provide a clear roadmap for skin condition improvement until the next doctor's appointment.
