Now that spring is here, allergies are in full swing. While many allergy sufferers must only deal with sneezing and itchy, watery eyes for the next few weeks, many sufferers must also deal with atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a type of eczema that is typically very sensitive to many irritants and causes a great deal of discomfort. This disease is a special type of hypersensitivity that includes chronic eczema, inhalant allergies, and asthma. It is a hereditary disease; therefore it is most common in families with a history of severe allergies. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Georgia we provide comprehensive dermatological care for patients suffering from any type of skin condition or disease. Dr. Jamie Weisman is well respected and renown for her advanced and specialized treatment to provide patients with the highest level of care.

Atopic dermatitis results in extremely itchy and inflamed skin that becomes red, swollen, cracked, weeping, crusted, and scaly. Dry skin is a common indicator, but the incessant itching results in severe skin conditions that can only be managed by thorough and personalized dermatologic care.
