Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Phoenix II
Application over 29 days twice daily
Device: Phoenix II (BAY81-2996)
Active Comparator: Phoenix I
Application over 29 days twice daily
Device: Phoenix I (BAY81-2996)
No Intervention: Untreated skin
Untreated skin areas of subjects will be observed over 29 days

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Local scored atopic dermatitis (SCORAD) as clinical assessment by means of the intensity items of the SCORAD index [ Time Frame: Up to 29 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects with abnormal vital signs [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
    Vital signs consist of blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature

  2. Number of patients with adverse events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Up to 10 weeks ]
  3. Erythema by means of chromametry [ Time Frame: Up to 29 days ]
  4. Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) as a measure for skin barrier function [ Time Frame: Up to 29 days ]
  5. Skin hydration by means of corneometry [ Time Frame: Up to 29 days ]
  6. Intensity of pruritus by means of visual analogue scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Up to 29 days ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female Caucasians aged between 18 and 60 years
  • Patients with mild to moderate AD (Atopic Dermatitis) presenting a scoring AD (SCORAD) rating below 50
  • Skin type I - IV according to Fitzpatrick
  • Acute AD symptoms on each assessment areas (local SCORAD ≥ 3 and </= 12) at Baseline
  • Acute symptom of pruritus at Baseline

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any other skin disease at the test area that would interfere the clinical assessment in the opinion of the investigator
  • Moles, tattoos, strong pigmentation, or scars at the test area that would interfere the clinical assessment
  • Regular intake of antiphlogistic drugs (for example, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug [NSAIDs])
  • Any condition or treatment which might influence the trial (e.g. any treatment with topical antibiotics, antifungals, or corticoids) within 14 days prior to screening as well as during the trial (exception: topical treatment of AD lesions other than the test areas (for example, face) with low potency steroids restricted to small areas)
  • UV-therapy or the use of solarium within 30 days before screening as well as during the trial
  • Any alternative treatment of AD (e.g. acupuncture, kinesiology, and homoeopathy) within 30 days before screening as well as during the trial
