Hi Atopic dermatitis is a chronic recurring skin condition. Unfortunately there is no permanent cure. However the good news is that this can be controlled by modifying lifestyle. Please have quick shower with ph balanced body wash in lukewarm water. Avoid perfumed soaps or bubble baths. Prefer cotton clothes. Use a moisturiser cream often. You may need the steroid creams to deal with acute episodes. You may also need oral antibiotics as well as anti allergy treatments. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products
