Can Atopic Dermatitis spread?

The team at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists of the South Florida area believe in providing quality care to new and established patients in their practice locations. One condition that is often seen is that of atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a condition that can be extremely bothersome. It can cause unsightly patches of red and white skin, and can become itchy and uncomfortable for extended periods of time. Our team can evaluate a patient, provide a proper diagnosis, and discuss treatment options for individuals based on the severity, type, and scope of their atopic dermatitis.

Can atopic dermatitis spread?

Some patients are concerned that eczema is contagious, but it is not. It cannot be spread from person to person from contact. However, it can spread on the skin and body of the patient. This can happen if patients continuously itch their skin and do not effectively treat the flare-ups that can occur.

Finding a team that works with you to treat atopic dermatitis

One of our own doctors at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, Dr. Nancy Muskat, has personal experience with atopic dermatitis. “Having had this condition as a child, I sympathize with my patients. There are many treatments that help, but not always clear or put a patient into remission.” By working with a team of doctors who are determined to find a solution, patients visiting the office will be able to work with a dedicated team of professionals. We also have a wide range of therapies for patients to try to find the one that works best for them, as there is no “one size fits all” solution for all patients with atopic dermatitis.
