Researchers have reported that meditation is a viable coping mechanism during eczema flares. Participants in the NEA-funded study found that consistent meditation helped improve concentration and gave them a sense of control over their itch.
A new kind of lab mouse might someday help scientists better understand the role microbiota play in eczema and the human immune response.
Researchers at the University of Virginia found that soaking in dilute apple cider vinegar was more likely to cause mild skin irritation than improve skin integrity.
Researchers are starting to identify distinct characteristics of atopic dermatitis in elderly patients along with special considerations required for diagnosing and treating them.
Researchers examined the skin of children who have atopic dermatitis combined with food allergies and identified characteristics that are unique to the dual condition compared to AD alone.
The relationship between atopic dermatitis and Staphylococcus aureus is longstanding and complex. A Dutch company is investing in a new technology that targets staph to help reduce disease severity.
In addition to conjunctivitis, a widely reported side effect of the atopic dermatitis biologic Dupixent (dupilumab), researchers report that eosinophilia and facial eczema could also be side effects.
The communication pathway between the skin and the gastrointestinal tract may be complex, but it could hold the key to the relationship between AD and food allergies.
A study conducted in The Netherlands found a strong association between the severity of pediatric AD and the composition of bacteria found in both the nasal passages and on the skin.
The Swiss scientists theorized that the same immune cells that protect us against the normally harmless Malassezia fungus might also play a fundamental role in triggering atopic dermatitis.
