Practical Points

  • One third of patients with atopic dermatitis have comorbid IgE-mediated food allergy

  • Atopic dermatitis and food allergy together increase the risk for progression to asthma

  • Emollients are the mainstay of maintenance therapy in atopic dermatitis

  • Topical corticosteroids and topical calcineurin inhibitors have shown equal efficacy in eliminating pruritus, sleeplessness and symptomatic therapy of the disease
