Abstract

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic infl ammatory itchy disease which usually begins during the fi rst months of life. The classical infantile AD is characterized by exudative lesions mainly involving the scalp, the face and the extensor surfaces of the extremities. However, the infants may present as erythroderma, which should exclude other diff erential diagnoses. In the management we have to consider the high ratio of body surface to body weight, which is associated with high absorption of topically applied drugs. Management should include avoidance of trigger factors and the education of the parents. Finally, primary prevention measurement of AD should be considered, that have recently changed.
