Background: Currently, there is no existing information regarding prescribing practices for the management of childhood atopic dermatitis among pediatricians in Thailand.
Objective: In order to learn about basic knowledge, natural history, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention for childhood atopic dermatitis in Thailand
Methods: 900 self-administered questionnaires were randomly mailed to pediatricians throughout Thailand, asking about their preferences in the management of childhood atopic dermatitis. One hundred and eighty-five of these 900 questionnaires were returned (a response rate of 20.6%)
Time Perspective: Prospective

A disseminated vesicular-pustular eruption caused by the herpes simplex virus (HERPESVIRUS HOMINIS), the VACCINIA VIRUS, or Varicella zoster (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It is usually superimposed on a preexisting, inactive or active, atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC).
The widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly, erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder (e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.), or as a primary or idiopathic disease.

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.
