Purpose: This study was performed to investigate prevalence related characteristics and management status in children with atopic dermatitis(AD) for developing health promotion strategies led by community. Methods: Data were collected from 6,562 children with AD in preschool and elementary schools in a district of Ulsan city. Results: The majority of children(44.4%) were onset in less than 2 years after the birth. Seventy six point seven percent of subjects had skin rash and the pathologic lesion of them were flexion of upper extremities and extension of lower extremities. The prevalence rate of the respondents was 30.3%. In bathing, the children in AD group had used soap more frequently than children in normal group. The most preference type of complementary therapy in frequency order were aloe, aroma oil and Pasture. Conclusion: More effective management strategy for alleviating symptom and preventing advanced disease such as asthma and allergic rhinitis should be developed. And also scientific evidence for using complementary therapy is necessary to be provided.
