Itching. Atopic dermatitis is an itch that rashes (as opposed to a rash that itches) - it's the itching that comes first, and scratching it that causes the rash. The itchiest areas are typically crooks of arms, backs of knees, and sides of neck, although other areas can be involved. Most kids outgrow it, although an unfortunate minority do not.

A good rule of thumb: do not touch your itchy eyelids unless applying moisturizer and this should be done ALOT.
