Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin disease that most commonly occurs in children. This study aimed to assess the effective of softener on polyester textile material on the pruritus degree and erythema of patients with atopic dermatitis. The research was conducted at Senior High School 17 of Makassar. The method used was clinical test with experimental design to determine the role of softener on pruritus response of patients with atopic dermatitis. The sample consisted of 50 people given fabric softener material on the right and without softener on the left arms. Two hours and twenty four hours later the degree of pruritus and erythema was measured. The results of the research indicate that the use of softener on polyester textile increases the degree of pruritus and erythema.
