Atopic Conditions: Looking After Your Skin
Eczema is the general term for a group of skin conditions that causes dry, itchy, scaly and red skin. There is no cure for Eczema but in most cases it is manageable. Eczema is identified as areas of the skin will become very itchy, dry and have inflamed red patches. This will generally occur on the face and body.
What treatments are available?
Eczema often flares up when your skin gets too dry. External aggregations such as humidity, wind, cold temperatures or harsh soaps and washing without moisturising after can lead to dry skin. Therefore, it's important to ensure you moisturise to help control the symptoms of Eczema and maintain a healthy skin barrier.
Bathing is an effective way to help soothe and calm the irritation, but you must ensure the temperature of the water is lukewarm and you use a gently cleanser such as Uriage XEMOSE Cleansing Soothing Oil and follow immediately after with a good topical emollient.
Topical emollients need to contain active ingredients to bring immediate and lasting relief to eczema, psoriasis or any atopy prone skin. Emollients are medical moisturisers that can be used several times a day. Emollients will help to restore your skin barrier, reduce the frequency of your Eczema flare ups, and will stop irritants and allergens which cause these flare ups.
