- Atopic dermatitis
Most dermatologists refer to it as atopic dermatitis (AD). Approximately 17.8 million Americans have atopic dermatitis, which often appears as a red, itchy rash normally on the cheeks, arms, and legs. People with allergies such as asthma and hay fever or those with a family history are most likely to develop AD.
