Abstract

Abstract Atopic eczema is a chronic relapsing inflammatory skin disease and is a common dermatological condition seen in children and adults. These children often endure complex skincare regimes that can keep the condition under control when effectively managed. This literature review aims to identify and understand the barriers that influence the adherence of eczema treatment for children and young people. Current literature from 2011 to 2021 exploring barriers to treatment adherence for children and young people with atopic eczema was sourced via database searching and reference searching, resulting in six selected papers. Five qualitative and one quantitative paper were selected for further synthesis, identifying three themes. By building trusting relationships and understanding barriers to adherence, healthcare professionals, can make atopic eczema treatment more effective. Individualised conversations about treatment concerns, understanding the psychosocial impacts of atopic eczema on children and families, and providing clear, consistent advice can be beneficial.
