A Proactive Tacrolimus Approach Reduces AD Flares

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a very common, chronic, inflammatory eczematous skin disease, affecting up to 20% of children in Western Europe and Australia. The prevalence of AD in adults is less well defined, but it is believed that about 40% of childhood cases will continue into adulthood. The morbidity and impact on quality of life of these patients can be very severe and the psychological distress suffered correlates well with the severity of the dermatitis.
