Cyclosporine (such as Neoral) suppresses the immune system (immunosuppressant) and is used to treat severe cases of adult atopic dermatitis that haven't responded to other treatments. By blocking the body's inflammation process, this oral medicine can effectively control atopic dermatitis itch and rash.
Short-term treatment with cyclosporine works well in both adults and children. Cyclosporine can cause serious side effects, such as high blood pressure and kidney problems. So your doctor will monitor your treatment closely.
As soon as a person quits taking this medicine, the skin problem often comes back.
