Atopic dermatitis (AD) affects about 18% of the children’s population. Genetic, immunological and environmental factors play a role in the etiopathogenesis of AD. Disturbances in the proper functioning of the protective layer of the skin are conducive to bacterial, viral and fungal infections. The antiseptic and cleansing effect of sodium hypochlorite (previously used in the treatment of wounds and burns) was the starting point for the use of this substance in the treatment of superinfections of atopic lesions.
Description of cases:
