Atopic Dermatitis − also known as Atopic Eczema − is a skin disease that makes skin dry, red, irritable and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which makes symptoms worse and can lead to skin infection. Atopic Dermatitis can also impact on sleep and quality of life. When babies and children suffer their parents can feel helpless and guilty.
The disease has two distinct phases:
- An acute phase when skin flares up
- The period between flare-ups when skin is calmer
Because there is no known cure for Atopic Dermatitis, the primary aim when caring for atopic skin on a daily basis is to prolong the non-acute phase. During a flare-up, the focus is on soothing and calming skin as quickly as possible. Eucerin AtopiControl offers the phase-adapted skincare that atopic skin needs.
Most products in the range contains a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A and barrier-strengthening Ceramides. When used daily, the basic care products − a bath and shower oil, a balm, a lotion, a hand cream, a face cream and an all-purpose cream − reduce dryness, redness and itching.
Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to relieve skin during a flare-up. It offers intensive care: reducing itching, moisturizing skin and strengthening its natural barrier. Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray instantly cools skin, reduces itching within 60s and offers relief for up to six hours1. It can be used when skin is itchy either between flare-ups or during the acute phase of Atopic Dermatitis. It is also effective on skin that is itchy as a result of Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes.
All products are clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver results while being gentle on atopic skin. Research shows that Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream2, Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion2 and Eucerin AtopiControl Balm3 also promote a good night’s sleep and improve quality of life.
