What is the cause of atopic dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema/dermatitis and resembles a skin allergy. However, it is not only caused by an allergy but a potential number of different triggers. Eczema/dermatitis is the result of not being able to retain much moisture in the skin. Dry skin is more prone to redness and itchiness. One of the main reasons why anyone will suffer from atopic dermatitis is genetics. If your parents suffer from it then you are much more likely to have the condition yourself. Atopic dermatitis can be triggered by irritants such as soaps, environmental factors like the weather, food allergies, clothing, hormonal changes, skin infections, or sweatiness.
