Atopic dermatitis, also referred to as eczema, is a chronic skin condition characterized by itchy and inflamed skin rashes. It can occur at any age, though it is more common in children. Atopic dermatitis / eczema can sometimes be seen in patients who also suffer from hay fever or asthma and may cause flare ups during the year. Rashes can appear anywhere, but typically found on arms and behind knees. Mild cases of Eczema / Atopic Dermatitis can be treated by avoiding triggers such as harsh soaps and other irritants as well as topical creams and ointments which can help strengthen the skin barrier and decrease itching. Moderate cases of Atopic Dermatitis sometimes respond to topical prescriptions of corticosteroids, as well as non-steroidal prescription medications. When these treatments are not effective, newer and more effective treatments have become available for Moderate to Severe cases of Eczema / Atopic Dermatitis. They are classified as “biologic therapy” and are targeted treatments for qualified patients.

How Is Eczema Diagnosed?
Atopic dermatitis/eczema can be diagnosed in several ways. Commonly, the diagnosis is based on the appearance and distribution of red, scaly, and/or bumpy patches that are usually found inside of the elbows and/or behind the knees. These patients often have other associated conditions such as hay fever or asthma. Sometimes a skin biopsy is necessary to distinguish eczema from similar skin conditions (for example, psoriasis). People with eczema usually have flare-ups depending on the weather and season.
At-Home Treatment Options for Eczema
A mild case of eczema may be treated successfully at home. Some treatment strategies include avoiding harsh soaps, irritants and other ingredients that can trigger flare-ups.
Supporting and strengthening skin with topical creams and ointments is also recommended for those wanting to improve symptoms of mild eczema such as itching or burning.
Moderate to severe atopic dermatitis may respond to topical steroid creams, as well as other prescription medications. However, eczema can also be a very persistent condition that won’t adequately respond to these common and readily available treatments.
Biological Therapy - A Targeted Eczema Treatment
When available atopic dermatitis treatments are ineffective, slightly more effective treatments exist but have a significant risk of side effects. Biological therapy is the newest form of treatment, which promises effective control of eczema with significantly less potential for side effects. Currently, there is only one biological therapy that is FDA approved but there are multiple alternatives that are under investigation. Unison Clinical Trials is at the cutting edge and working with the pharmaceutical companies and FDA to help these new, exciting treatments become available. At Unison, qualifying individuals can play an important role in this process via paid clinical trials.
