Atopic dermatitis is currently affecting from 15 to 20% of children in developed countries. Can have mild, manifest itself in the form of small changes on the skin - and so fortunately it is in most cases, as well as can bring serious damage that is difficult to treat, because itchy and the child is constantly scratching the skin again, which is not conducive to its regeneration. Severe stages of AD are the cause of many problems and discomfort for entire families, which has a direct impact on the quality of life.

Fortunately, proper skin care with atopic dermatitis helps to improve its condition. Here are a few methods to try.

Without a microwave

Do you heat up meals in the microwave?

So stop it. Many scientists say that removing a microwave from the kitchen has a very good effect on the skin's condition.

Is this really a food allergy?

Many parents, when facing the problem of atopic dermatitis, begin to use a reduction diet in children. Unfortunately, they often don't notice any effects, but they still stick to dietary austerities.

Meanwhile, often the poorer the menu, the better the skin condition instead of getting better. This fact is confirmed by scientists. Lawrence Eichenfield, MD, director of Children's Dermatology, San Diego Children's Hospital notes that in the youngest children under 3 years of age the test results are often positive, and in fact the child is not allergic to the tested nutrients. In practice, the results are false positive.

Therefore, when there is no significant improvement after using the diet, it is recommended not to use it. A restrictive diet can cause more harm than good.
