Dermatologist 's  Response
atopic dermatitis is very troubling both for the child and the parent, the good side of the coin is that it is self limiting in 75% of patients by end of puberty say eighteen years of age. to maintain it never let the skin go dry or parched , so moisturize it well with good moisturizers and encourage yr child to drink lots of fluids and water.
