In brief: Not like that
Atopic dermatitis isn't a communicable disease.
So it isn't "contracted" like some other diseases or infections. However, atopic dermatitis has been linked to allergies in some cases. In these situations we know that exposure will trigger a flare. This is a very different process than an infection.
