Infants have the highest incidence of atopic dermatitis (AD) in the United States, but the fewest treatment options. This is a case a doctor submitted about a baby who is refractory to multiple oral and topical treatments. A multidisciplinary panel discusses how they would approach the baby’s treatment, emerging options for this vulnerable patient population, and if anything can be done now to prevent progression of the atopic march later.
