Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Evening primrose oil also has not proven effective in treating atopic dermatitis.
While chamomile is used worldwide to treat many conditions including atopic dermatitis
Blends of Chinese herbs have proven effective in controlling atopic dermatitis.
New ways to treat atopic dermatitis can be appealing. Before trying another therapy, be sure to consult a dermatologist. Over-the-counter products and alternative therapies should not be a substitute for a dermatologist’s care. These should not be tried before seeking medical care for atopic dermatitis.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Hi,Thanks for your query, The first steps in treating dermatitis is to identify the type of dermatitis you have and eliminate the cause, if possible.

Mild skin inflammations usually respond to over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream. To reduce inflammation and heal the irritation of most types of dermatitis, a doctor usually recommends a prescription corticosteroid cream and might prescribe an oral antihistamine to relieve severe itching. You may need an antibiotic if a secondary infection develops. Severe dermatitis may call for corticosteroid pills or injections.
Regards, Dr.D.P.Bura
