What is the main cause of eczema?
Atopic dermatitis, more commonly referred to as eczema, is a chronic condition.
There are several symptoms associated with eczema that you should look out for, such as the appearance of itchy, red patches on the skin at irregular intervals.
Eucerin has created carefully formulated products for eczema prone skin, which are designed to minimise the symptoms and reduce the flare ups.
Eucerin has a range of creams and lotions to help calm dry, itchy, irritated skin associated with eczema.
The Eucerin Ato-Control range is formulated to hydrate the skin, soothe itching and burning sensations and act against microbiological agents acting within the skin itself in order to provide a comprehensive programme for managing break-outs and irritations in both the short and long terms.
Eucerin Ato-Control lotion and Bath and Shower Oil has been scientifically tested to ensure that it offers real and lasting relief from the uncomfortable and unpleasant symptoms associated with eczema, restoring the skin's natural verve, vigour and vivacity and maintaining its natural, healthy balance.
Dry skin is a common side effect of eczema, so rich, moisturising lotions are a good way to nourish and hydrate ailing skin.
Eucerin’s AtoControl products for dry, irritated and atopic skin are rich in natural Omega fatty acids, which prevent the loss of moisture, and Licochalcone A, which restores and strengthens the natural dermal barriers that retain water.
Licochalcone A also boasts powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which combat bacteria and viruses and reduce irritation, swelling and redness. When included in an oil or cream, this substance is easily absorbed into the body, where it can help to reduce the impact of the underlying irritation and stave off any infections that may affect atopic skin during an inflammation.
Eucerin’s AtoControl range is also free from fragrances, colourants and parabens, so it can be used on all skin types, as well as younger children aged three months and up.
Ato-Control lotion rejuvenates eczema-prone skin, thanks to the presence of several invigorating oils.
Grape Seed Oil acts as a strong antioxidant, purifying the skin and providing a nutrifying boost for irritations and outbreaks.
Evening Primrose Oil supports the natural barriers, aiding in moisture retention and, in turn, nourishing the affected areas.
What foods to avoid if you have eczema
