Treatment Of Atopic Dermatitis With Antibiotics

In atopic dermatitis, many times skin develops bacterial infection. The skin shows evidence of this infection with appearance of weeping, pustules, crusting or pain. At this juncture, oral antibiotics are given to clear the bacterial infection. In atopic dermatitis, topical antibiotics are not generally preferred. Your doctor will prescribe a course of antibiotics and you should strictly take the medicine as prescribed. Overuse of antibiotics leads to resistance and therefore avoid taking any antibiotics without doctor's advice. Antibiotics commonly cause no side-effects, but if you observe any development, you should talk to the doctor.
