Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply make-up on top of Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream?

Yes, the face cream for Atopic Dermatitis makes an ideal make-up base. Be sure to check the ingredients on your make-up to ensure that it doesn’t include anything that might trigger symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis.

Is the face cream for eczema suitable for use on children?

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

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 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.

Can I use Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream during a flare-up?

Yes. You can use Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream daily − during flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis as well as in the period between flare-ups. During acute, flare-up periods we also recommend that you use any medication recommended by your doctor and/or Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to soothe your skin and reduce irritation. Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a medical product, or intended to replace one, but is suitable for use alongside your medical treatment to help calm your skin. Apply your topical medical product first, followed by Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream. You can then use Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream for extra moisturisation.

Does Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream offer sun protection?

No, and it’s important that you apply sun protection in the morning if your face is going to be exposed to sunlight. Try Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Cream SPF30 or Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Cream SPF50+.

Protect atopic skin from the sun

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.
