This article shows features of management of atopic dermatitis (AD) in different countries: Russian-speaking countries (the first group) and English-speaking countries (the second group) in comparison with healthy children. Online forms filled in by mothers, whose children suffer from AD, were analyzed. It wasshown that children from Russia and were more often treated by allergologists. Children with AD from the first group were mostly born first in the family, mothers from the first groupusually assessed food allergy as skin flares. In contrast mothers from the second group where mothers also noted wheezing, hives, diarrhea as long as exacerbation of AD as a symptom offood allergy. Russian children much more often were fed by hydrolyzed formula and amino acid-based formula. Their mothers felt guilty because of child’s disease not so often as in English-speaking families, and almost in every Russian-speaking family co-sleeping was practiced.
