«The Effectiveness of External Therapy in the Rehabilitation of Patients with Atopic Dermatitis»

A.S. Askarova, A.A. Rgebaeva

The Republican Medical Academy, Astana, Kazakhstan

Since patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) suffer from impaired skin barrier function and itching, treatment is symptomatic, which aims to prevent dry skin and itching. Today, there is no doubt that external therapy is pathogenetically justified and necessary for every AD patient. However, patients still do not have a proper understanding of external therapy, including skin care and the correct use of topical preparations. It has been proven that 71.3% of AD patients eventually develop food allergies, allergic rhinitis and/or bronchial asthma. In this regard, the achievement of early control of the course of AD slows down its transformation into other allergic diseases. It is also known that dryness and itching of the skin in atopic dermatitis lead to physical and emotional stress for both the patient and his family members. Optimal medical therapy not only improves the quality of life of patients, but also prevents stress.
