Can atopic dermatitis be cured with creams?

Not cured. Creams can treat the symptoms (itching, dryness and flaking) but not the cause. You should consider using a mild soap (dove), good moisturizer (aquaphor, eucerin) and limiting certain foods that can exacerbate the rash ( milk, nuts, cheese, tomatoes, wheat, yeast, soy, and corn).
Protect. Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness. Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot. Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.
Eczema. Atopic dermatotis is medical term for eczema. The treatment varies. Mild eczema usually just requires the area to be patted dry and then vaseline. If moderate, Hydrocortisone may be used. If worse triamcinilone may be used.

May not be atopic. In general atopic dermatitis responds well to topical steroids. If they are not working at all then it is possible that the diagnosis is not correct. Also, many atopic derm patients may have concomitant bacterial infection in some affected areas. Confirming such a co-existing problem and treating it appropriately will allow the steroids to work better. You probably should be seen. Read more...
