ATOPIC DERMATITIS
& ECZEMA


Atopic eczema (or atopic dermatitis) is defined as recurring inflammatory skin symptoms associated with atopy.  It is a chronic pruritic and inflammatory dermatosis which progresses in flare-ups. It is a complex multi-factor disease that combines two types of anomalies: an alteration in the epidermal barrier (filaggrin deficit), which makes the skin dry and abnormally

sensitive to IgE allergens. It is the most common dermatosis among children:  Ranging from 12% to 15% in France, it can appear during the first months of infancy. It affects 20% of children under the age of 7, and close to 18% of children between the ages of 7 and 16.
