Chapter Two of Atopic Skin Disease - A Manual For Practitioners opens with an important and comprehensive account of emollient therapy, including histology, physiology and the effects of disease - enabling an understanding of the relevance of moisturizer treatment for dry skin. The account of how emollients work is referred to at the second visit - see the "Live Without Eczema" Patient Handbooks - in The Combined Approach. Chapter Two of The Manual explains the types of emollients available, with recommendations on choice, and methods of use (see Topical Tip #1) , and then continues with an overview of the use of topical steroids, with both therapeutic and side effects explained. The chapter also describes the part played by other treatments including antihistamines, systemic treatments, light therapy and herbal remedies. Finally there is a section on the complications that can occur during conventional treatment, including hypersensitivity reactions, infections, and steroid side effects.
