You have to find out your triggers in consultation with your doctor. Your doctor may perform an allergy test, or try and find out the trigger by elimination or other method. If you take precaution to keep away from the common triggers, you may be able to prevent atopic dermatitis to a great extent. Consult your doctor and draw a list of common triggers that may flare up atopic dermatitis in you. Avoid them and you may be free from atopic dermatitis for a longer period. In general, avoid stress, extreme heat, sweating, irritating clothes, body care products like soaps, etc. which may be harsh, common environmental allergens such as pollens, molds, dust mites, etc., avoid food that causes allergy in you (you will have to find that out). Remember to moisturize your skin regularly.
