About Us

National Jewish Health is one of the leading institutions in the United States for treatment and research of atopic dermatitis. We have a variety of comprehensive programs specially designed to teach patients and families how to care for this condition. We provide single-day consultations, multi-day outpatient visits or day hospital care for more extensive testing and treatment.

The National Jewish Health for Kids atopic dermatitis team brings together physicians, nurses, dieticians, psychiatrists and psychologists with specialized expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of atopic dermatitis.

Our focus is not only on managing symptoms of the disease, but also on identifying the specific triggers that result in exacerbations. We understand the individual needs of patients and families and the resources and education necessary to control atopic dermatitis. Our experienced team has a high success rate for helping families learn how to manage their disease; frequently, skin disease that was refractory to treatment at other medical centers has been improved thanks to this team.
