Get Rid of Atopic Dermatitis with Herbal Remedies

Atopic Dermatitis


Atopic dermatitis is an autoimmune disease which damages the barrier of skin resulting in dry, itchy skin and rashes that appear to be brown, purple, gray or red in color. It is the most common type of eczema which comes and goes on and off in a person for a certain period of time or maybe throughout their life. During its course, if the disease becomes chronic, certain other types of eczema may also overlap the condition. In this write up, we will be getting detailed information about the Atopic dermatitis and best organic herbs offered by Planet Ayurveda to treat it naturally.

Atopic Dermatitis


Atopic dermatitis is one of the types of eczema which is the most common and causes more severe itching and redness of skin as compared to other forms. Exaggerated allergic reaction of the immune system to some allergen results in severe inflammation, itching, rashes, dryness and redness of the skin. Atopic dermatitis has a characteristic of scratch-itch cycle which has both psychological as well as physical components. Itching in atopic dermatitis is so severe that one goes on itching which feels pleasurable at times but causes more inflammation and infection of the skin further. Children and infants are more prone to it; however, several cases of adults are also reported every year worldwide.

Signs and Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis may vary as per the different age groups of the patient. However, some of the common signs and symptoms are:

  • Itchy, scaly and dry skin
  • Rashes on the scalp and on cheeks (in case of infants or children)
  • Fluid containing eruptions in these rashes
  • Common locations of rashes are knees, elbows, face and neck
  • Scaly skin having light or dark spots
  • Skin appear to be leathery and thick
  • Discoloration of skin
  • Easily irritated skin


The exact causative factor behind the atopic dermatitis is unknown. Though, there are certain factors which seem to play a role in its pathogenesis like abnormal response of the immune system to an allergen as compared to the other persons who are not having atopic dermatitis. Second factor is the altered barriers of the skin which causes skin to dry up too much and make it prone to become dehydrated and infections. All these factors lead to extremely dry, itchy, red skin developing rashes and patches on exposure to certain allergens. There are also certain triggering factors which can initiate the atopic dermatitis in the body like hot water baths or showers for longer time, scratching every now and then, exposure to heat for long, dry, cold weather, allergens like dust, pollen, dirt, sand and smoke. Stress also plays a vital role for the aggravation of this disease and people exposed to physical or mental stress for a long time have been reported to trigger the attack.


There are no laboratory tests used to diagnose the atopic dermatitis. Thorough physical examination by a doctor of the patient’s skin will reveal the possibility of atopic dermatitis. Along with it, knowing the medical history is a favor as this disease is usually seen to run in the families, falling under the category of diseases caused due to heredity. The family history can be of atopic dermatitis, asthma or hay fever. Certain patch tests can also be done to rule out other skin conditions.


Atopic dermatitis is an incurable disease as per orthodox system of medicine and there is no specific treatment for the disease in it. The treatment is only given to suppress the present symptoms like itchy and redness of skin. But it does not help patients much as attacks come on and off and with time, the intensity can also increase. Also, the steroids used in the treatment have harmful effects on the other organs of the body.

Several skin diseases that are known to be incurable as per modern medicine have been treated successfully in this ancient system of medicine, several times. There are plenty of amazing herbs in Ayurveda whose therapeutic actions have been proved effective and used since ages.
