The Aron Regimen
There are three main hallmarks of severe atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis). First, it is firmly established that atopic eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder. Second, dry and damaged skin is a very common finding in eczema. Thirdly, it is also now widely established that up to 90-100% of patients with persistent atopic eczema are colonized with many bacteria, especially with Staphylococcus aureus. Most experts believe that this chronic infection of the skin with Staphylococcus aureus is one of many important exacerbating factors behind difficult to control eczema.
The Aron Regimen treatment program for severe eczema is specifically formulated to address all three of these noted features of atopic eczema. The Aron Regimen uses the combination of a hypoallergenic moisturizer, a topical antibiotic, and a topical corticosteroid – all three applied together in a coordinated fashion under the direction of Dr. John Van Wagoner, Eczema Specialist. The frequency and duration of therapy are variable for every patient. Frequent online follow-ups are necessary to customize and tailor the therapy to achieve and maintain control for our patients.
