Atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema is a chronic, relapsing, familial, symmetric and pruritic inflammatory skin disease that commonly presents during early infancy and childhood, but can persist or start in adulthood.
It is commonly associated with elevated serum immunoglobulin E levels and a personal or family history of allergies, allergic rhinitis and asthma.
It is one of the most common skin diseases afflicting both children and adults.
Diaper rash or perianal dermatitis is a common condition among young infants. It is a form of skin inflammation characterized by red and tender-looking skin in the diaper region—encompassing the buttocks, thighs and genitals.
