About this course
The management of infected eczema or atopic dermatitis (AD) remains a challenge for dermatologists. This lecture focuses on the importance of getting the diagnosis right for patients with AD, the role of Staphylococcus aureus in driving the AD flare, and how staphylococcal superantigens induce corticosteroid resistance and worsen the infection. Dr Liew Hui Min also reviews the evidence on the efficacy of topical antibiotic and corticosteroid combination therapy in controlling and relieving symptoms of AD.
