In patients with eczema that is difficult to manage, it is important to consider the possibility that they are allergic to the topical medications or emollients being used to manage their skin disease.

For this group of patients, topical corticosteroids or the excipients in their vehicle may actually worsen their underlying disease and are the focus of this article.

CONCLUSIONS: According to our study, no genetic variation to predict recalcitrant AD was identified, suggesting that clinical manifestation, rather than genetic variations of AD patients is more likely to be an important factor in predicting the prognosis of AD. Further large-scale studies on the correlation between genetic variation and recalcitrant AD are needed. PMID: 29676071 [PubMed]
