Turmeric, coconut oil and avocado oil fixes it along with a diet of anti-inflammatory foods/ omega 3.

Very good information here! One thing I never understand is why blog posts and articles about atopic dermatitis always list the back of the knees and inside the elbows as common locations, but never mention the front of the knees and outside the elbows which is where members of my family most commonly have atopic dermatitis flare ups. I found another good article on this topic: Atopic Eczema
