Current treatment options for atopic dermatitis include avoiding environmental triggers, specific skincare that targets the skin barrier defects, as well as anti-inflammatory therapy. When these options prove to be unsuccessful, treatment with systemic therapies or phototherapy are the next options, with many alternatives available for patient-specific needs.
