Atopic skin in infants

Atopic dermatitis affects nearly 20% of children in a chronic disorder, so symptoms can be prolonged over time.

Babies and children with atopic skins usually recover as they grow and stop developing symptoms.

Atopic dermatitis in infants

Children are more likely to develop atopic dermatitis although it can occur at any age. In typically, in 90% of cases those affected are children under the age of 5, and recover from it over time.

The main symptoms can be seen on the scalp, face and body,although they may vary depending on the age of those affected.

For infants, symptoms may appear from 2 months of age, such as a rash that leaves skin flaky,dry, and itching.

When babies have an outbreak, the skin may oolyse. The most common is the appearance of dermatitis in the cheek area, scalp, knees and elbows.

Children from two years of age often develop dermatitis in the form of a rash with flaky areas and itching.

The skin becomes thicker and has bulging and hardened areas, with the most affected areas being the folds of the elbows and knees, the neck, wrists, ankles and folds of the buttocks and legs.

When we talk about atopic dermatitis in adults we mean the appearance of flaking and excessive dryness in the skin, with itching. It appears on both the face and the body.

Atopic skin in children

Atopic dermatitis usually develops in two specific phases. A first phase in which it is not active and another phase in which the shoots appear.

The inactive phase of atopic dermatitis presents very irritable, excessive dry and flaky skin. This is why you should be hydrated on a daily basis.

In the active or breakout phase, both dryness and irritation and itching are more acute and should be treated with some specific type of treatment.

Effective treatment is very important to help calm these symptoms. Go to your pharmacy and see your pharmacist about the most recommended treatments for atopic skin.
