Hi.Sir,your daughter fits into the diagnosis of Atopic Dermatitis.The Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis she has are part of the criteria for diagnosing the same.For her skin lesions apply Atogla moisturising lotion twice daily.Then apply Desonide gel in the morning and Tacrolimus 0.03% at night over the eczematous lesions for 1 week and revert back.For Asthma and Rhinitis please consult a Paediatrician.
