How is diagnosis of atopic dermatitis made?
The diagnosis is generally made clinically. There are no laboratory tests for confirmation. Patients with the disease may have increased eosinophil count and increased blood IgE levels. Patch testing can help differentiate atopic dermatitis from contact dermatitis.
