Atopic skin

Understand It Better — Take Better Care of It


Baby's skin can become atopic due to a variety of factors such as cold, heat, bacteria, fungus, ..etc.. However, unlike adults' skin, most baby skin conditions disappear over time but sometimes, a special care, treatment is necessary.

  2. What solution for my baby's atopic skin?

What are the causes of atopic skin?

Atopic skin can be caused genetically or be caused by a weakened skin barrier, an altered inflammatory and allergy response. 
Causes and symptoms can be different from one another. Redness, flares, dryness, or even itch can mean a skin disease. Those symptoms can also become worse due to the use of environmental irritants: soap, temperature, detergents, animal dander, ..etc..
Eczema, or Atopic Dermatitis, is the skin condition the most common for baby's and children's skin with 20% affected babies, during their first year. Plus, the risk for babies to suffer from skin condition can even be higher according to their parents. Indeed, if one parent has eczema, the child has 30% of becoming atopic too, and 70% if both parents are atopic.

What solution for my baby's atopic skin?

If you are atopic, the best thing to do is to prevent a maximum the development of the same type of skin in your baby. To do so, one product is essential:
> Atoderm Préventive: It restores a healthy, multi-lamellar skin barrier by improving lipid and protein production to combat and prevent Staphylococcus aureus.
On another hand, if your child has already developed an atopic skin, you need to treat and moisturise his/her skin condition with:
> Atoderm Intensive Baume: It decreases itching and soothes irritations while moisturising and nourishing atopic skin.
