In brief: Atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition characterized by dry, wrinkled, itchy and occasionally red skin.
Symptoms can be reduced with hypoallergenic cleansers and moisturizers such as Cetaphil, and fragrance/dye free detergents. Topical steroids are also helpful. This condition stems from a hypersensitivity reaction of the immune system. It is controllable, not curable.

Not due to food, not due to stress, not contagious. Treat with dermatologist, not allergist.
