Atopic dermatitis is a chronically relapsing eczematous disease of the skin. A wide range of therapeutic regimens has been used for atopic dermatitis. A better understanding of its pathogenesis will also lead to the development of novel approaches to treating this disease. This article reviews the recent advances in allergen-specific sublingual immunotherapy and therapy with antileukotriene drugs, probiotics, mycophenolate mofetil, leflunomide, and intermittent fluticasone propionate ointment, which the authors expect will be clinically useful therapies in the near future.
