PMID: 36263777.


A body of research has examined the role of fatty acid (FA), vitamin, and mineral supplementation as adjunctive treatment for atopic dermatitis (AD); however, results are conflicting and concrete recommendations are lacking. The objective of this study is to highlight the role of these nutrients in alleviating AD severity and provide the clinician with consolidated information that can be used to make recommendations to the pediatric patient and caretaker, where this topic is of high interest.
