Abstract

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by intense puritus and skin dryness. The pathogenesis for AD has not been fully understood to date. Complementary therapies are very popular as effective treatment for AD among clinical practitioners. This study presents a comprehensive review of published works associated with textiles-based complementary therapies for AD treatment such as wet-wrap dressing, functionalized textiles, and the application of hydrogel techniques in the textile industry to provide a better understanding of the development and design of new textiles-based transdermal therapies.
