U047 - Case Controversies in the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis

Saturday, March 2; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Design treatment regimens for difficult to treat atopic dermatitis patients.
  • Recognize that for many difficult atopic dermatitis patients, there is no "ideal" therapy and even experts have differing approaches.


Have difficult or frustrating atopic dermatitis patients? Parents who don't want to use topical steroids? Patients who want 'natural' treatments? Patients who want to treat their atopic dermatitis with dietary avoidance? Patients who have failed all your normal approaches? 4 highly experienced clinicians with diverse viewpoints (a dermatologist who specializes in adult atopic dermatitis, a double boarded pediatrician/pediatric dermatologist, a double boarded allergist/dermatologist, and an allergist who specializes in atopic dermatitis) will share their approaches to challenging atopics. You will take home pearls and approaches you can use next week in your practice!
