Certain antigens and allergens have also been found to been implicated in Atopic dermatitis

She also stated that in Atopic dermatitis, the skin barrier function is weakened leaving it vulnerable and open to attack from allergens and irritants.

“This weakened skin barrier causes a cycle of microbiome dysbiosis, penetration of irritating agents and allergens, inflammation, itching & pain. This often occurs on the cheeks, neck, arms and legs. Mostly starts at Infancy and can persist into adulthood in some cases.”
