WHAT IS ATOPIC DERMATITIS?
FROM CAUSES TO SOLUTIONS, HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW.
Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition that runs in families and primarily affects children. Atopic skin is constitutionally dry with an impaired “barrier function”. Some allergens may penetrate the skin and cause inflammation. Result? Intense itching, which affects sleep and quality of life. Atopic dermatitis needs specific treatment during flare-ups and a suitable maintenance routine:
• Cleanse gently with a soap substitute
• Apply emollient at least twice daily
• Shower immediately after sport then apply emollient
• Rebalance your skin’s friendly bacteria
