1. Atopic dermatitis is what disease?

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is a disease related to inflammatory skin lesions. The direct causative agent of the disease is still unknown. Local factors, living environment and the activity of the body's immune system are considered to be related to the onset of atopic dermatitis.
Atopic dermatitis is a common skin disease, not contagious, not life-threatening, but causing a lot of trouble in the life of sufferers. This is a skin condition caused by an inflammatory process. Characteristic manifestations of the disease are dry skin, red papules with vesicles in the acute phase, lichenification and thickening of the skin when the disease progresses and lasts.
Atopic dermatitis can appear in any population but is most common in children under two years of age. The prevalence of the disease in the community is currently unknown, with no difference between the sexes.

2. Causes of atopic dermatitis

The cause of atopic dermatitis is unknown. Many experts agree that an allergic site, combined with factors from the external environment and the functioning of the immune system, is the cause of the onset or worsening of the disease.
Statistics show that patients with atopic dermatitis often have comorbidities such as bronchial asthma, contact rhinitis, urticaria. More than 35% of children with eczema will develop asthma when they grow up.
Allergens in the environment are very diverse, the most common are dust, pollen, wool, house mites or insects, foods such as eggs, milk, fish, peanuts. They activate T lymphocytes and macrophages, triggering the action of the body's protective immune system. In addition, the allergen may appear from within the body and have the same ability to activate T lymphocytes as foreign factors.
The decline in the function of the skin's natural protective barrier is one of the factors that aggravate the disease. The ceramic layer on the surface of the skin is no longer intact, causing dehydration, reducing the moisture content of the skin, making the disease worse and difficult to treat.

3. Principles of treatment of atopic dermatitis

Treatment of atopic dermatitis helps to relieve symptoms and prevent recurrence of the disease. To get good results, the treating doctor and the patient need to establish a close cooperation to follow the treatment principles well:
Use a combination of topical drugs and systemic drugs: Corticosteroids and creams Humectants are topical agents used in all stages of the disease. However, corticosteroids are drugs with many undesirable effects, so their use should be under the guidance and indications of specialists. If the patient has contraindications to corticosteroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may be used instead. When there is a bacterial superinfection on the skin lesions, the patient may be prescribed topical antibiotics or oral antibiotics depending on the specific case. Antihistamines are selected to treat pruritus symptoms, avoid irritating the patient to scratch and further scratch existing skin damage.

4. What do patients with atopic dermatitis eat?

Prophylaxis of recurrent atopic dermatitis is one of the top priority goals. One of the preventive measures is to limit the use of foods or active ingredients that are likely to cause irritation and allergies to users. Knowing what atopic dermatitis to abstain will help patients ensure good prevention. Some foods people with atopic dermatitis should not use include:
Meat: This is an animal product, the ingredient contains a lot of saturated fat, so it is easy to promote inflammatory reactions. Many studies show that atopic dermatitis patients should not eat a lot of red meat. White meat such as chicken, duck and fish can be used as an alternative source of protein for beef or pork in the daily diet. Milk and dairy products: This is a common allergenic food group with a rich source of saturated fat. Candy: Foods high in sugar can aggravate the symptoms of dermatitis, especially the chemical sugars. Starch: Should replace starchy foods like pasta or bread with whole grains to strengthen the digestive system and the body's immune system. Foods that are too high in starch are likely to increase the symptoms of atopic dermatitis.
