Recommendation details

Referral advice recommendation:Topical calcineurin inhibitors should not be used under occlusion (bandages and dressings) for treating atopic eczema in children without specialist dermatological advice. Whole-body (limbs and trunk) occlusive dressings (including wet wrap therapy) with topical corticosteroids should only be used to treat atopic eczema in children for 7-14 days (or for longer with specialist dermatological advice), but can be continued with emollients alone until the atopic eczema is controlled.
