Atopic eczema on the face
Atopic eczema is an unpleasant and lifelong disease. It has its relatively calm periods, when symptoms are either not experienced at all or only in the form of excessively dry and sometimes scaly skin. And when we need it least, something irritates our skin. It doesn't have to be our intentional fault at all.
Just more stress than usual or a hormonal fluctuation is enough for atopic eczema to occur. If hidden parts of our body like our arms or legs get "dry", it's uncomfortable. But when atopic eczema appears on the face, it brings an extra trauma with it. So what to do with atopic eczema on the face? Which creams and ointments for atopic eczema are used on the face?
Atopic eczema on the face manifests itself mostly in very itchy subcutaneous pimples that "bloom" on the surface of the skin. The skin is red, dry, foxy. Itching often leads to scratching of the affected area and scabbing.
Treatment of atopic eczema on the face
The innate broken skin barrier is the main cause of the skin's inability to effectively hydrate itself. Therefore, it is dry and easily damaged. When rubbed (for example with a towel) or scratched, it develops micro-cracks. Irritant molecules can penetrate them. When irritated, the skin begins to behave inappropriately and the whole organism reacts. Therefore, excellent hydration and protection of the skin from allergens are essential for the prevention of atopic eczema in the face and elsewhere. Make-up for atopic skin can only be applied with hypoallergenic cosmetics, preferably from a pharmacy.
So what to moisturise an atopic face with? Always with moisturising and not greasy products. Even though in our grandmothers' time, pork fat was to be tolerated, having an oily face that smells like a butcher's shop is no prize. Today, there is a wide range of products for atopic skin. Some of the mainstays include Linola, Protopan, Eucerin. Of the herbal compresses, borage or evening primrose works well. But dry atopic skin needs to be moisturised many times a day. You can try Dermaguard barrier cream which moisturizes for at least 4-6 hours and also protects the skin from outdoor allergens throughout the time.
If the eczema gets to an acute state where the skin is severely irritated, red, itchy and cracking, we need to see a dermatologist before we scratch the eczema in our sleep and get an infection. Corticosteroids work quickly and with short term use we don't have to worry about side effects at all.
Dermaguard barrier cream strengthens the damaged skin barrier and protects the skin like a shield from invisible environmental allergens. It can also be used on the face, outside the eyelids.
