Stop the Itch of Atopic Dermatitis

About 10% of people will suffer from eczema (atopic dermatitis, AD) at some point in their lives. Although many consider it to be a childhood disease, eczema can often affect adults, especially people over age 70. It causes uncomfortable, itchy, inflamed rashes on the skin that can be debilitating at times. Previous studies have shown that a topical antimicrobial combined with a steroid may benefit patients, but current guidelines discourage the use of antimicrobials in treating atopic dermatitis. Physicians from Brown University, in Providence, RI and Northwestern University, Chicago, evaluated the degree of improvement in the severity and extent of AD lesions after using a compounded antibacterial, steroid, and moisturizer combination (CASM). They concluded CASM may offer additional benefit for patients who have plateaued with standard therapies. Talk to our pharmacist today to see how we can help.
