Phase-adapted care for Atopic Dermatitis
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 AtoControl 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 reduce dryness, redness and itching.
Eucerin AtoControl 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.
All products are clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver results while being gentle on atopic skin.
Fragrance-free, the range is suitable for adults, children and babies over three months.
