Change in Eczema Severity and Area Index [ Time Frame: 2 Weeks ]
The eczema area and severity index (EAS I) is a validated composite score measuring physical signs of atopic dermatitis. The scale ranges from 0-72. The components measuring severity are four signs/symptoms of atopic dermatitis: erythema, population, excoriation and lichenification on a scale of 0-3 for each body of the four body regions (head/neck, trunk, arms, legs). The component measuring area is a body surface area measurement of each region. The area and severity of each body region is weighted based on size of region which are added together for the complete score. The score for each patient's with scores between 0 and 7 are considered mild ,between 7 and 21 are considered moderate, and greater than 21 are considered severe. In this study the change in EASI score between baseline and end of study (baseline EASI subtracted from end of study EASI) was calculated as a final outcome data point.

Change in Transepidermal Water Loss [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
A measure of water flux out the skin using a small non-invasive probe. Values can range between 0-no water loss and over 100-severe water loss. This measure indicates the degree of skin barrier permeability with lower values indicating lower permeability (improved skin barrier function).

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE VANOS Cream and Skin Barrier Function
Official Title  ICMJE Effects of a Novel Formulation of Fluocinonide 0.1% Cream on Skin Barrier Function in Atopic Dermatitis
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of short-term therapy using "VANOS Cream," a super-potent topical steroid cream on skin barrier function in patients with atopic dermatitis. This cream is already approved for this indication, but the investigators will further examine its effects on the skin barrier. This cream is a novel formulation of fluocinonide designed to enhance compliance with a cream base, but have the skin barrier repair properties of an ointment.
