    The term “atopic dermatitis” is used in my medical records and I’ve had it since infancy. During my early adult years it seemed to disappear but has since returned now that I’m a senior. There are periods where it doesn’t bother me but it seems to return now and then. I use a prescription ointment for flare-ups but I’ve been told not to use it continuously.

    Alexia28,

    Your life long journey with atopic dermatitis certainly speaks to your experience with the condition. I am sorry to hear that your symptoms have returned to you now as a senior. I am glad that prescription ointment is helping to treat your flare-ups, but if you are still concerned about using it a lot, we do have an article on our site about complementary and alternative treatments you might like to explore: https://atopicdermatitis.net/complementary-alternative-medicines/. Please know that you are not alone – I will be thinking of you. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Take care,
    Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)
