Atopic Eczema

Eczema Atópico - All 2 Skin

Interview with Dr. med. Christine Schrammek-Drusio

Can you describe what you think about atopic eczema?

Atopic eczema is a condition characterized by recurring flare-ups. It manifests itself in the acute stage through symptoms such as redness, edema, scaling, vesicles, exudation, crusting and intense itching. When the disease becomes chronic, thickening and peeling of the skin occurs. In atopic eczema, the skin barrier is compromised, resulting in dry skin and facilitating the entry of toxic substances and microorganisms. Dry skin is also sensitive to irritation. Often, appropriate care products can stabilize the condition of the skin, protecting it and prolonging symptom-free periods. This may reduce the need for cortisone-containing creams and ointments. Some products from our derma.cosmetics line are very effective for skin care in atopic eczema.

Can you describe why Special Care Cream is so effective in atopic eczema?

At the heart of eczema is dry skin: therefore, products with moisturizing and protective ingredients are ideal. This keeps the skin well hydrated and smooth. Special Care Cream contains a combination of valuable plant extracts such as hibiscus, chamomile and calendula, as well as panthenol and vitamins. This helps to soothe the skin, relieving feelings of tension, redness and irritation, and effectively prevents skin irritation.

Is Sensiderm Stress Protect Cream also recommended for atopic eczema?

We have had good experiences with Sensiderm Stress Protect Cream and Sensiderm SOS Balm for sensitive skin care. Substances that help stabilize the skin's barrier function are essential. With products designed in this way, it is possible to improve the sensation of dryness and reduce the irritation and itching associated with it. Treating the itch is the main focus to break the vicious cycle of atopic eczema. Scratching damages the skin, making it easier for irritants and allergens to penetrate. This can lead to irritation, which in turn intensifies itching. The special ingredients in Sensiderm Stress Protect Cream help reduce stress symptoms, dryness and itching. The Defensil® contained is a mixture of substances that promotes the strengthening of the skin barrier and is used to calm redness and irritation. In addition to its extra richness for very dry skin, we avoid all potential irritants (dyes, fragrances, parabens, mineral oils, PEG derivatives).

Sensiderm SOS Balm is another highlight of our catalogue. This unique, cool and light balm is used as "first aid" for redness, stress symptoms and itching. It acts on several causes of inflammation. The unique combination of medically inspired ingredients allows it to act on several fronts. Due to its lightness, the balm can not only be used on dry and sensitive skin, but also on sensitive skin that cannot tolerate very rich products.
