It is a complex condition that involves dysfunction of the skin barrier and immune system, and is often associated with other allergic conditions such as asthma and hay fever. Managing atopic eczema requires a specialized skillset, including understanding of medical treatments, skincare practices, and lifestyle modifications, as well as the ability to provide emotional support and education to patients and their families.
