Product info

Instant itch relief

Atopic skin is irritable, dry and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which gets in the way of a good night’s sleep and can have a negative impact on quality of life.

Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray has been specially formulated to deliver both immediate and long-lasting itch relief. It is clinically proven to reduce symptoms of itchy skin within 60 seconds with results that last for up to six hours.1

The innovative spray contains a unique anti-itch ingredient complex that counters the itch sensation on multiple levels – from the outer layers of skin down to the nerve endings – to instantly cool, calm and soothe irritated skin:

  • Menthoxypropandiol cools skin and works at a sensory level to reduce feelings of itchiness
  • SymSitive* calms skin, stops any stinging and reduces redness.
  • Polidocanol soothes skin by reducing the signals of itchiness at a cellular level.

Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray is ideal for localized itching on the body caused by Atopic Dermatitis and can be used during both flare-ups and the periods between. It’s convenient for on-the-go and can be used alongside Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream and/or your usual medication.

Fragrance-free, the cooling spray absorbs quickly and is non-greasy and non-sticky. It is suitable for adults, children from the age of three and is also effective on skin that is itchy as a result of Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes.

Sun protection is an important part of skincare for Atopic Dermatitis

Protection

Immediate itch relief

Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray instantly cools skin, reducing itching within 60s. Use it to provide immediate and long-lasting relief whenever your skin is itchy – either during a flare-up of Atopic Dermatitis or in the periods between. As it’s not a care product, we recommend you use it in combination with other products in the AtopiControl range. Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray is also effective on skin that is itchy as a result of Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes.

Sun protection

Atopic skin is particularly sensitive to UVA and UVB rays. For this reason, if your skin is going to be exposed to sunlight, we recommend that you apply a sun protection product after your care product. You only need to add this stage in the mornings. Try Eucerin Sun Creme SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Creme SPF50+ for your face and try Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF50 for your body.

Ingredients

How they work together

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream and Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray have been specially formulated with active ingredients that soothe itchy skin.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream contains Menthoxypropandiol and Decanediol to calm and soothe skin during flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis:

  • An extract of menthol, Menthoxypropandiol activates natural cooling receptors (known as TRPM8) found in the nerve endings in skin. The resulting cooling sensation reduces feelings of itchiness.
  • Anti-bacterial Decanediol combats the Stapphylococcus Aureus bacteria associated with Atopic Dermatitis.

The formula also contains the unique active ingredient complex used in the daily-use basic care products in the range:

  • Licochalcone A: an extract of liquorice which soothes skin and reduces redness
  • Ceramides: to strengthen skin’s barrier function

The key actives in Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray are Menthoxypropandiol, SymSitive* and Polidocanol:

  • As in the Acute Care Cream, the Menthoxypropandiol cools skin and works at a sensory level to reduce feelings of itchiness
  • SymSitive* calms skin, stops any stinging and reduces redness. It does this by blocking an itch-related receptor known as TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid 1) and calming the skin’s nervous system.
  • Polidocanol soothes skin by reducing the signals of itchiness in the cells of the epidermis (the outer layers of skin. It does this by inhibiting the release of TSLP (Thymic Storal Lymphoietin) an itch mediator created by the keratinocytes (a type of epidermal cell).

As well as being used to calm skin during a flare-up, the spray can also be used in the periods between flare-ups when skin is a bit itchy. The product should not be used on open wounds.

FAQ (5)

    Which should I use during a flare-up: Eucerin Anti-Itch-Spray or Eucerin Acute Care Cream?

    Both products have been specially formulated for use on itchy, atopic skin and include active ingredients proven to calm skin. They complement each other and can be used together or individually as well as alongside any medical treatment you may be taking.

    The spray instantly cools skin and offers immediate and long-term itch relief. It can be used both during flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis and in the periods between. It’s easy to spray onto your body and you don’t have to apply it with your fingers. It’s suitable for adults and children older than three, and can also be used to relieve itching caused by Psoriasis, Xerosis or Diabetes.

    The cream offers intensive care for atopic skin during a flare-up. As well as relieving itching the formula moisturizes skin and strengthens and repairs its natural barrier. The cream can be applied liberally to whichever part of your body is experiencing a flare-up (including your face) and can be used on babies (from three months) and children as well as by adults.

    Can I use Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray instead of my usual medication?

    Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray is not a pharmaceutical product and is not intended to replace one.

    Is Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray suitable for use on children?

    Yes, so long as your child is three years or older. If you are looking for a product suitable for babies (from three months) we recommend Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream.

    What do you mean by a ‘flare-up’ and ‘the period between flare-ups’?

    Broadly speaking, Atopic Dermatitis has two different phases. A ‘flare-up’ is one of the names used to describe the acute, active phase when skin is at its most irritable. It can feel intensely itchy, you may experience a burning sensation and skin can look red, dry and flaky. Between these acute, flare-up phases are periods of time when your skin is relatively calm and less irritated. This period is also known as the non-acute, non-active or interval phase. The length of each phase varies greatly depending on the individual, but products specially formulated to care for atopic skin − such as those in the Eucerin AtopiControl range − can help to extend the period between flare-ups and offer relief during acute flare-ups.

    Is Atopic Dermatitis the same as Atopic Eczema?

    Atopic Dermatitis and Atopic Eczema are collective terms for inflammatory changes to the skin and they include many different dermatological diseases. Atopic Dermatitis and Atopic Eczema are used to describe the same chronic inflammatory condition.
