Abstract

Dermatologists and pediatric dermatologists frequently treat patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), and patients and guardians often associate AD with food allergies. A common misconception is that dietary restrictions will resolve the disease. The role of diet is evolving in the discussion of AD. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has recently provided recommendations on diet and therapies for AD. This article reviews recent scientific data on the role of foods and dietary modifications in the management of AD as both an intervention and as prevention.
