Abstract

Background: Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory skin disease, with genetic and environmental background. Successful management of atopic dermatitis requires a multipronged approach. However, standardized guidelines for the management of Korean atopic dermatitis patients do not exist. Objective: This study was performed to provide a standardized treatment guideline for atopic dermatitis in Korea. Methods: On the basis of treatment guidelines proposed by the ADRG (Atopic Dermatitis Research Group), we consider the characteristic provocation factors reported in previous Korean cases and the new modalities which have recently been introduced. Results: Management should compromise of a disease-adapted treatment which combines adjuvant basic therapy, symptomatic relief and, if needed, anti-inflammatory treatment and the identification and avoidance of trigger factors. New therapies such as topical calcineurin inhibitors are also considered to be good alternatives for the long-term control of atopic dermatitis. Conclusion: The algorithm contained within the article was presented as the basis for a guideline of clinical practice that could be used to facilitate the treatment of atopic dermatitis at any stage in Korea.
