They will be cured when medicine is used and after stopped using, they reappear after some days. In addition to that he is having itching in his whole body. Plz give any solution for his itching problem.

Till the age of 7-8 years atopic dermatitis is known to recur. To keep the same under control follow this advice. Use cetaphil cleansing lotion for bath. Apply moisturizers like oryza after bath. Use cotton clothes which can keep the arms and legs covered adequately. Avoid insect bites. Avoid known triggers like dust food and pollens .
