Effects of an emollient application on newborn skin from birth for prevention of atopic dermatitis: a randomized controlled study in Thai neonates.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2022 Jan 30;36(1):76-83. Epub 2021 Sep 30.

Neonatology Division, Pediatric Department, Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

Background: Enhancing the skin barrier in high-risk neonates by daily use of emollients during infancy might prevent atopic dermatitis (AD); however, there have been no studies on this topic in a country with a tropical climate. Climate may affect the results of the use of emollients in neonates for AD prevention and possible adverse cutaneous eruptions.

Objectives: To test the hypothesis that emollients used during infancy can prevent AD in high-risk neonates in a country with a tropical climate and to evaluate other possible adverse cutaneous eruptions in this population. Read More
