Learning objectives

  • Describe the impact of sweat dysfunction in atopic dermatitis
  • Discuss the implications of skin microbial dysbiosis on flares and disease severity in patients with atopic dermatitis

Description

Dr Lisa Beck outlines emerging evidence showing that the loss of claudin-3 in the sweat glands of patients with atopic dermatitis contributes to pathogenic leak of sweat within the epidermis. She discusses how this may result in itch symptoms and increased susceptibility to infections. She further explores the impact of skin dysbiosis, focusing on the effect of S. aureus colonization.
