Bismillah alhamdulillah:

Professor of many subjects from the USA talking about Atopic Dermatitis. A rather unpredictable choice of subject as I don’t see that much in children here. I wonder how useful the audience found the topic. The slides were overly texty. The talk overran and the take home messages are pretty much the same: stop the itch, emollients, bleach and tars and antibiotics.

Other misc. points:                                                   
IgE testing not done anymore.
Fillagrin gene mutations 9% in Europeans renders them more susceptible.
Treat with antibiotics to reduce colonisation rather then impetigo.
