Atopic dermatitis is a common childhood skin disease of increasing prevalence that greatly affects the quality-of-life of affected children and their families. The complex and multidimensional effects of this disease have been described qualitatively and measured quantitatively with quality-of-life instruments. The burden of atopic dermatitis can likely be improved by identifying parents and their caregivers with impaired quality-of-life and providing appropriate education and psychosocial support.
