Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream

Intensive care for flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis

Relief for itchy skin. Soothes and calms redness and irritation and relieves itchiness at a sensory level, thereby reducing the need to scratch. 

Intensive care cream for flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic skin is dry, irritable and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which triggers the itch-scratch cycle. Symptoms worsen and can get in the way of a good night’s sleep and have a negative impact on quality of life.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to offer relief and intensive care for skin undergoing a flare-up
of Atopic Dermatitis. The formula has a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decanediol and anti-itching and cooling Methoxypropandiol (MPD). This complex, combined with a high concentration of Ceramides, strengthens skin’s barrier, alleviates dryness and relieves itchiness at a sensory level, thereby reducing the need to scratch.

Fragrance-free, the cream for Atopic Dermatitis flare-ups can be applied as often as needed on affected areas and has been shown to support sleep and improve quality of life for those with Atopic Dermatitis. Suitable for adults, children and babies over three months.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Very good care efficacy and skin tolerability proven on atopic skin

MAIN FINDINGS

In a Product in Use (PiU) test, Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream was used alongside Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion by a sample of 144 men and women, all aged 30+, with mild and moderate Atopic Dermatitis. After four weeks of daily use they reported the following results:

Improves skin condition

97% agreed with the statement that the products “Improve skin condition”

Supports better sleep

  •  96% agreed that, with the products, “I don’t need to scratch a lot during the night”
  • 94% agreed that, with the products, they weren’t “waking up early due to skin problems”
  • 93% agreed that, during the trial period, they woke up “less often during the night”
  • 89% agreed that the products help them to “wake up well-rested”
  • 88% agreed that the products helped them to have a “good energy level during the day”


Improves quality of life

  •  Before the trial, 92% of the sample agreed that Atopic Dermatitis affected their quality of life. After four weeks of using the AtopiControl products, only 38% of the sample agreed that the disease affected their quality of life. From this we can infer that, as a result of using the products, 54% of the sample felt there was an improvement in their quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream suitable for use on children?

Yes, so long as your child is three months or older.

Can I use Eucerin Atopic Control Acute Care Cream on my face and body?

Yes. The cream can be applied liberally to whichever part of your body is experiencing a flare-up of Atopic Dermatitis

How much Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream should I use?

You should use as much as you find you need to soothe your skin and reduce the sensations of itchiness. You can apply the product liberally and as often as needed.

Can I use Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream instead of my usual medication for Atopic Dermatitis?

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a pharmaceutical product and is not intended to replace one.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream works effectively alongside medication to help improve your skin condition and reduce itching during flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis. Your doctor will be able to advise on how and when to apply or take your medication. If you are using a medical ointment or cream, we recommend you apply that first and allow it to absorb before applying Eucerin AtopicControl Acute Care Cream. 

What is the difference between Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream and Eucerin AtopiControl Cream?

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream offers intensive care for flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis. Eucerin AtopiControl Cream is intended for daily use and can be used in the period between flare-ups when skin is calmer as well as alongside medication and/or Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream during a flare-up. 

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 dry, red and flaky. Between these acute, flare-up phases are periods of time when your skin is relatively calm and less irritated. This calmer period is also known as the non-acute, non-active or flare-up free 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 calmer, non-acute phase and offer relief during acute flare-ups.

Is Atopic Dermatitis the same as Eczema?

Dermatitis and Eczema are the same thing: collective terms for inflammatory changes in the skin. As such, they include many different dermatological diseases. Atopic Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis are also the same thing. 

Is Atopic Dermatitis contagious?

No. Atopic Dermatitis is not contagious.

Sun protection is essential as atopic skin is particularly sensitive to sunlight

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. 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.
