Heritable hypersensitivity to pollens or other environmental allergens, which results clinically in immunologic and inflammatory reactions in the skin.
(A TOH pik or ay TOP ik DUR muh TIE tis): Skin disease characterized by intense itching. Many patients have a history of allergic diseases such as asthma and hay fever.
A chronic skin disease in which the skin becomes extremely itchy and inflamed, causing redness, swelling, cracking, weeping, crusting and scaling. Its multifactorial pathogenesis involves genetic susceptibility, environmental triggers and immune dysregulation (typically dominated by T helper 2 cells), with the involvement of immunoglobulin E contributing to its classification as an atopic disease.
usually begins in childhood and sometimes runs in families. It developes as itchy, thickened, fissured skin, most often in the folds of the arms and backs of the knees. It tends to come and go, and usually improves with age.
A form of eczema, is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the skin. The hallmark of the disease is pruritus (itchiness).
The medical term for eczema. It is a skin disorder sometimes found in people with allergies. It is a very itchy, red, scaly rash that may ooze a clear fluid. JKL NO QR WXYZ
Eczema that is due to allergies. Eczema is a non-contagious skin condition where certain areas of the skin get inflamed and itchy and sores develop.
is particularly prevalent in children; inherited factors seem important, as there is nearly always a family history of dermatitis or asthma.
Also called eczema, it is a chronic skin disease characterized by red, itchy, dry, swollen, and inflamed skin.
a severe form of dermatitis characterized by atopy
Skin eruptions, often in early childhood, caused by allergy against foodstuffs, etc. Allergy antibodies (lgE) can be demonstrated against the allergenic substance. - agonists: Drugs with relaxing effects on airway muscle, causing the airways to widen; e.g. Terbutalin, Ventolin.
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects the skin. The word "dermatitis" means inflammation of the skin. "Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever. In atopic dermatitis, the skin becomes extremely itchy. Scratching leads to redness, swelling, cracking, "weeping" clear fluid, and finally, crusting and scaling. In most cases, there are periods of time when the disease is worse (called exacerbations or flares) followed by periods when the skin improves or clears up entirely (called remissions).

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disorder characterized by intense itching, occurring in individuals predisposed to developing certain hypersensitivity reactions.
a skin disorder that is characterized by itching, scaling, and thickening of the skin; usually located on the face, elbows, knees, and arms.
red, itchy, dry skin most common in infants; a result of an exposure to an allergen or an irritant.
A chronic skin rash, also known as "eczema," that often appears in the first few years of life.
Atopic dermatitis, also called eczema, is an allergic skin disorder that usually appears in babies or very young children, and which may last until the child reaches adolescence. Eczema causes the skin to itch, scale and flake.
A chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. It is manifested by lichenification, excoriation, and crusting, mainly on the flexural surfaces of the elbow and knee. In infants it is known as infantile eczema.
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disorder categorized by itching, rash, and a personal or family history of seasonal allergies or asthma. Alternative names Infantile eczema; Atopic eczema; Dermatitis - atopic; Eczema
an intensely pruritic (itchy) maculopapular inflammation commonly found on the face, elbows and knees of individuals who are prone to allergies.
patches of dry skin, occurs in infants, children, and young adults with genetic hypersensitivities (atrophy). Often occurs with allergies and frequently runs in families in which other family members have asthma or hay fever. It usually begins in infancy and may increase and decrease in severity during childhood and adolescence. It tends to become less of a problem in adulthood, unless you're exposed to allergens or irritants in the workplace. Alternative names Infantile eczema; Atopic eczema; Dermatitis - atopic; Eczema
A skin disease characterized by areas of severe itching, redness, scaling, and loss of the surface of the skin (excoriation). When the eruption ( rash ) has been present for a prolonged time, chronic changes occur due to the constant scratching and rubbing known as lichenification (thickening of the skin with accentuation of the skin lines to form a crisscross pattern).

A chronic inflammatory skin condition that usually initially appears in young children who have an inherited predisposition to allergies. Many children with atopic dermatitis go on to develop atopic (allergic) rhinitis or atopic (allergic) asthma (see Allergies).
A skin condition, also known as eczema, characterized by extreme itching, lesions, scaling and flaking.
(atopic eczema or eczema) - a name given to a stubborn, itchy rash that occurs in certain people with sensitive or irritable skin.
