Atopic dermatitis (AD), a condition causing red and itchy skin, affects more than 40 million people in the US annually. Often, this condition is significantly complicated by additional comorbid conditions.

AD is considered to be a chronic, inflammatory skin condition with symptoms including red patches on individuals’ skin that can become itchy and occasionally rupture. As such, AD can be a very uncomfortable disease.

For those with the condition, the psychosocial distress of the very visible condition may even be worse than the physical symptoms of the disease.

AD is often accompanied by other immune-mediated conditions including asthma, hay fever, and food allergy, which can significantly worsen the burden on the individual.

Asthma and hay fever are the two most common comorbid conditions to AD, and are present in around 30% of people with the condition.

As AD often goes undiagnosed, so too may the accompanying comorbid conditions. Without a diagnosis, proper treatment is often missed, worsening the situation.
