Atopic dermatitis

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - It is your body's largest organ so that means it is something you need to take care of but it also means that a lot can go wrong.

Dr. Aisha Aslam is helping her patients with atopic dermatitis.

The symptoms include dry skin all over the body and blisters with oozing and crusting.

It is treated with antihistamines to help with itching; topical steroid ointments can also help.

Stop this from happening by keeping the skin moist by using lotions like petroleum jelly.
