Abstract

Background: Treatment of infantile and childhood atopic dermatitis needs special consideration compared to adult's counterpart Repeated exposure to irritation by slaver or rubbing makes facial lesions difficult to treat in infants and children. We considered the deterioration factor and the treatment that we performed. Methods: We considered 6 infantile and childhood atopic dermatitis who had severe condition on their face. Result: All the patients needed enough application of topical steroids. Exacerbation of atopic dermatitis masked concomitant skin infection such as impetigo or Kaposi's varicelliform eruption. Guardian usually hesitated periorbital and perioral application of topical steroids and tacrolimus. In order to obtain the guardian's understanding and cooperation, it was very important to establish a good doctor/guardian relationship by educational approach including an enough explanation about treatment policy. Conclusion: It was important for the treatment of infantile and childhood atopic dermatitis to identify and eliminate triggering factors. And we need to obtain the guardian's understanding and cooperation for our treatment policy.
