Edukasi dan Promosi Kesehatan Dermatitis Atopik
The most important education and health promotion for atopic dermatitis (DA) is finding and avoiding triggers so that the recurrence rate can be suppressed.
Patient education in atopic dermatitis (DA) involves giving patients general information about the disease. Patients should be informed that DA is difficult to completely eliminate because the disease is based on an allergic reaction. However, patients are also told that recurrence can be reduced by avoiding allergens.

Efforts to prevent and control atopic dermatitis (DA) can be done by:
