Atopic Dermatitis Exposed | Video #1: In atopic dermatitis, nonlesional skin is not normal skin

 

“Now let’s take a closer look at an image of atopic dermatitis. Surrounding these lesions are the so-called nonlesional skin which appears clinically unaffected. But when we look more critically at this nonlesional skin, we see that it is in fact not normal.” In this video, Lisa Beck, MD, explains that in atopic dermatitis, nonlesional skin is not normal skin.

Dr. Beck is a professor of dermatology and the director of translational research at the University of Rochester Medical Center Department of Dermatology and Medicine in Rochester, New York.
