Atopic dermatitis is most common in infants and may start as early as 6 months of age. Though it usually begins during infancy, it is more prevalent among children aged below five years old. Many people outgrow it by early adulthood. Treatment for atopic dermatitis depends on the type of rash which may appear as red to brownish-gray colored patches. Most mild eczema cases can be treated at home with skin barrier repair moisturizers and preventive care.
“We congratulate the Pediatric Dermatology Subspecialty Core Group of the Philippine Dermatological Society for creating an evidence-based, handy physicians’ reference that will be a big help in easing the pain and discomfort of Filipino children suffering from atopic dermatitis,” said Dr. Maria Carolina De Quiroz, Medical Affairs Director, A. Menarini Philippines.
“We are honored to support the development of this very timely handbook. A. Menarini Philippines is committed to work with Filipino physicians in continuously improving the quality of Philippine healthcare,” said Ninia Torres, General Manager, A. Menarini Philippines.
