Therapeutic regimens for the treatment and long-term management of Atopic Dermatitis (AD) have a twofold objective of decreasing skin inflammation and repairing the defective skin barrier. Essential treatments for AD in children should include topical moisturizers for skin hydration and prevention of flares, topical anti-inflammatory medications (e.g., corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, PDE4 inhibitor), allergen/irritant avoidance, and treatment of skin infections. Treatment regimens should be severity-based and implemented in a stepwise approach tailored to the individual patient. This stepwise approach includes initial use of emollients, gentle skin care, and escalating to more potent anti-inflammatory treatments as the disease severity increases. Currently available systemic medications should be reserved for the presence of recalcitrance to topical therapies due to associated toxicities.
