Chronic itch in atopic dermatitis markedly diminishes the quality of life of affected individuals. Sleep disturbance and impaired productivity in work due to chronic itch impose a socioeconomic burden. Conventional therapies for atopic dermatitis are capable of reducing atopic itch. However, the majority of patients are not satisfied with the antipruritic capacity of conventional treatments. In this review, we summarize recent progress in itch signaling in the skin, dorsal root ganglion and spinal cord. New therapies for controlling atopic itch are also discussed.
