Atopic skin care: Characterized by their dryness and extreme sensitivity, atopic skin affects 1 in 3 babies and 1 in 5 adults.

Atopy is a genetic predisposition to develop allergies. These allergies can be manifested by asthma, conjunctivitis or pollen rhinitis. In terms of the skin, we will talk about atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema . This results in a deficit of surface lipids, at the level of the horny layer, which no longer ensures its role as a protective barrier. The barrier function of the skin is impaired, it becomes permeable to external allergens. By penetrating the skin, allergens will stimulate the defense system excessively and trigger inflammation. Without appropriate care, the vicious circle sets in: the alteration of the skin barrier worsens the dryness and inflammation of the skin of the skin which makes the skin itchy, we want to scratch while scratching, allergens penetrate, which amplifies the inflammation and itching.

The clinical manifestations are therefore: very dry skin , redness and itching associated with the appearance of small blisters (vesicles filled with liquid) which will burst naturally or under the effect of untimely scratching.

Much more common than you think, atopic skin can sometimes be very uncomfortable and difficult to live with on a daily basis. What are the specificities of this type of skin?

Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory disease of the skin. This condition can develop as early as a baby's first few months and usually improves before puberty. It is most often due to a genetic predisposition inherited from one of the parents.

Atopic eczema is manifested by red patches, oozing and sometimes very intense itching. People with atopic dermatitis have dry, sensitive skin , often aggravated by flare-ups of eczema triggered by cold, stress, or even germs. This is due to an impaired barrier function of the skin which allows allergens to penetrate more easily and trigger inflammatory reactions.

Dermatitis alternates between eczema flare-ups caused by contact with allergens and periods of remission.

  • During seizures, treatments prescribed by your doctor, such as topical corticosteroid creams, are generally used to reduce inflammatory reactions and rapidly reduce the lesions. Seizures can last from a few days to a few weeks.
  • During the remission phases, it is strongly recommended and recommended to use at least once a day emollient, soothing, anti-itching, fragrance-free creams suitable for this type of dry and sensitive skin. This preventive action is to be carried out in combination with drugs prescribed by his doctor.
