L'atopie en détails

My eczema to-do list to better
live with my eczema

In the shower

  • Use an ultra-rich cleansing bar, a gel or a cleansing oil that is soap- and fragrance-free.
  • Do not use soap or fragranced, irritating products, or those that contain alcohol.
  • Do not rub the skin too hard with the towel.

On my skin

  • Only apply the anti-inflammatory cream (topical corticosteroids) to the red plaques
  • Apply moisturizing cream every day to hydrate your skin (at least once a day)
  • Calm itching sensations* by repeatedly applying Avène Thermal Spring Water.
  • Opt for dermo-cosmetic make-up suitable for sensitive skin

Daily

  • Opt for clothes made of soft materials like cotton.
  • Use hypoallergenic detergents
  • Do not use harsh chemical cleaning products

When I go to a meeting, people say I look like I've got bad sunburn. It's never easy during a flare-up, even psychologically. XeraCalm does not get rid of atopy, nothing can. But not wanting to scratch all the time is still a huge bonus.

Christelle

During a stay at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center a few months ago, I learned some very practical cleansing and skin care techniques, particularly to gently dab my skin with the towel without rubbing.

Vincent

I try to avoid accumulating dust in my home by cleaning regularly, using a vacuum cleaner rather than a broom.

How my skin works

Eczema is a complex multi-factoral disease, which is associated with two anomalies: skin with damaged barrier, that makes it dry and unusually sensitive; a more sensitive immune system to allergens, making the skin more reactive.

NORMAL SKIN
THE SKIN FULFILLS ITS FUNCTION AS A PROTECTIVE BARRIER:

  • Skin cells and cement are of good quality.
  • Water evaporates normally and in small amounts.
  • Allergens cannot enter.

ECZEMA / ATOPIC SKIN
THE SKIN DOES NOT FULFILL ITS FUNCTION
Eczema

  • Skin cells and cement are of poor quality.
  • Too much water evaporates.
  • Skin is dehydrated and dry.
  • It lets allergens enter more easily, which may provoke an inflammatory response.
