Answer

Frequent follow-up is needed early in the course of atopic dermatitis (AD) to ensure compliance and assess patient responsiveness to therapy. Analyze treatment failures for the presence of resistant organisms, contact dermatitis to a medication (eg, preservatives in steroid preparations, bacitracin), or parental noncompliance.
