NHS Choices Medical Reference

NHS Choices Logo

It's important to know which sources you can rely on for more information on atopic eczema.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has produced healthcare guidelines on the treatment of atopic eczema.

This guidance outlines NICE's main recommendations on how often topical steroids should be applied for this condition, and on treatment with tacrolimus and pimecrolimus (non-steroid creams and ointments).
