Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, remitting-relapsing inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by intensely pruritic (itchy) and dry, scaly lesions. AD is one of the most common paediatric skin disorders, and disease onset occurs in 85 to 90 percent of Canadian children before age 5. Among children and youth with AD, almost three-fifths have mild to moderate disease, which can be managed by a paediatrician or other primary care practitioners.
