Management of Atopic Dermatitis: Methods and Challenges
This new edition builds upon the foundational knowledge covered in the first edition, covering the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical presentation of atopic dermatitis in both pediatric and adult patients. It provides an overview of the mechanism and presentation of atopic dermatitis and focuses on the management methods experienced dermatologists have used to successfully manage atopic dermatitis. The book includes new chapters describing the special considerations for atopic dermatitis in skin of color patients, dedicated chapters on topical and oral prescription management reflected the latest FDA-approved treatments, and also a chapter covering the updated guidelines from the American Academy of Dermatology. A final chapter includes updates on the future of atopic dermatitis treatment.
This book provides physicians with insights into the management of atopic dermatitis, such as alternative treatments for pruritus, psychosocial impact on patients and families, assessing patient compliance, and patient resources.
