Skin care-hygiene tips for dealing with your child’s atopy-prone skin

Caring for very dry and atopy-prone skin is essential. Check out our skin care-hygiene tips for dealing with your child’s atopy-prone skin.

Daily hygiene – the importance of being gentle:

Bathing and showering are special moments that one experiences with pleasure:

• The water mustn't be too hot: don’t exceed 32°C or 33°C or you may provoke itching

• Baths should last between 5 and 10 minutes, but no longer since you’ll dry out your skin

• Use hygiene products preferably without soaps and which are not irritating

• Rinse off well

• Dry your skin gently, patting instead of rubbing

Essential emollient care products:

Emollient creams adapted to atopy-prone skin have numerous advantages:

• They improve skin dryness

• They return skin it its normal state and reduce the risk of splitting

• They fortify the skin, which prevents skin dehydration and the penetration and infiltration of external allergens

• They allow you to apply less cortisone cream

• They are used along with medical treatments during outbreaks and regularly in periods of remission.
