Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disease characterized by itch, an impaired epidermal barrier, inflammation, significant bacterial colonization with frequent skin infections, and a clinical course punctuated by flares and remissions. Although a number of stimuli may trigger a flare, psychological stress has been shown to play a role in this disease as well. Many integrative modalities are used in the treatment of AD including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture, homeopathy, biofeedback, hypnotherapy, natural oils, bathing modifications, probiotics, and dietary restrictions.
