Atopic dermatitis can be curable and can go away completely with adequate treatment. The sooner you get medical attention and begin your treatment plan, the greater the chance you have to make it go away. In severe cases the initial goal is probably to manage symptoms so that you can live a normal quality of life and so that it does not interfere with your goals in life. However, working on a cure is ideal. Atopic dermatitis is chronic and relapsing. So a common approach targets short-term treatment regimens for acute flares traditionally. However, a proactive approach that includes a long-term maintenance therapy is now a mainstream recommendation. This is based on insight into a defective underlying skin barrier and its relationship to inflammation on the skin. This helps to modify the disease course and possibly prevent complications associated with atopic dermatitis. Management includes gentle skincare, regular use of a mullions and moisturizers, patient education, family education, and anti-inflammatory methods to control flares and subclinical inflammation. Topicals are the mainstay of treatment. Though severe disease may require systemic treatment along with topicals. Factors that can exacerbate eczema flare should be identified and avoided.
