For optimal results and to soothe itchy and irritated skin suffering from atopic dermatitis apply Atopity soothing emollient body balm immediately after taking a bath or shower, which will further moisturize and lock the moisture in the skin.
Avoid contact with eyes!
Be careful, this product can cause slipping in the bathroom!
Apply moisturizing and soothing emollient balm immediately after bathing and every time you feel your skin is dry. Always keep skin with atopic dermatitis well hydrated, because this will create a reliable barrier between your skin and potential irritants and allergens from the environment.
Always choose perfume-free products for dry, irritated and atopic skin. Perfume and fragrance compositions can cause flare-ups of atopic dermatitis. To avoid deterioration, seek out products specifically designed for skin with atopic dermatitis and labelled “fragrance free”. The products from the ATOPITY series for skin with atopic dermatitis are designed without perfumes, SLS and other potentially irritating ingredients.
Never bathe in hot water and do not use ordinary soap or shower gel. Hot water and the sulfates contained in normal skin cleansers remove the delicate lipid barrier layer from dry and sensitive skin. It has a protective function, which on one hand retains moisture in atopic skin, and on the other – does not allow allergens from the environment to penetrate into it. Always use emollient cleansing oils because they support atopic skin by creating an additional moisturizing film that strengthens its water-lipid barrier.
Wear loose, bright, 100% cotton clothing. Chemically untreated cotton is less irritating than other fabrics and allows the skin to breathe. To avoid deterioration of atopic eczema, avoid tight clothing that causes chafing and sweating, and be sure to keep wool sweaters, scarves, and gloves away from your skin. Always wash new clothes before wearing them with perfume-free detergent to remove all possible irritants from the tissues.

What is atopic dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema in children, although it can affect people of any age. It is characterized by intense itching, skin irritation, and inflammatory lesions with variable appearance and distribution depending on age and severity. Atopic skin is very vulnerable and sensitive to any external factors. Furthermore, it is extremely dry and delicate, even in infants.
How common is atopic dermatitis?
Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common skin conditions, especially in urban areas and developed countries. It affects approximately 20% of children and youths in teen age, and 1 to 3% of adults. Most people develop that skin disease before the age of five. However, many completely outgrow the condition, or have significant improvement as they get older.
What are the symptoms of atopic dermatitis?
In infants, the rash spreads to the neck, scalp, arms, feet, and legs. Large body areas might get affected as well.
Older children and adults often develop a rash that is usually localized to a single zone, or distributed across many specific areas – especially the front of the neck, and inside the bend of the elbows and knees.
Although the color, intensity, and allocation of the rash can vary, it is always itchy. In older children and adults, the main symptom is severe itching, which can lead one to uncontrollably scratch the skin, hence activating the itch-scratch cycle and further worsening the condition.
Еventually, the constant scratching and rubbing cause the skin to thicken – a condition called lichenification.
What causes atopic dermatitis?
It is a complex disease, the root causes of which are still being explored. It is due to both genetic and environmental factors. It usually occurs in members of the same family, sometimes together with other diseases such as asthma and hay fever (allergic rhinitis).
Atopic dermatitis is not an allergy, but the presence of environmental allergens increases the chances of developing it – as well as the mentioned asthma and hay fever (these three are what doctors call “the atopic triad”).
What are the triggers of atopic dermatitis?
Many factors could trigger flare-ups of atopic dermatitis. These include emotional stress, temperature or humidity changes, Staphylococcus aureus bacteria’s presence on the skin, certain particles in the air (such as dust mites and fungi), some skincare products (like inappropriate cosmetics, fragrances, aggressive soaps), also excessive sweating, and contact with various irritants (especially wool). In some infants, allergies to certain foods could cause atopic dermatitis too.
What is best for atopic dermatitis?
It is recommended to replace the plain soap with substitutes such as emollient oil or cleansing gel with a light formulation with no irritating ingredients in the composition. It helps to apply an emollient balm or lotion right after having a bath when the skin is still moist.
Bathing itself should not be overdone – it should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes, with warm (not hot) water. Then the skin should be gently patted dry, with no rubbing.
Parents should trim their children’s nails well to minimize scratching injuries and thus reduce the risk of infections.
How to treat atopic dermatitis?
Although there is no cure for this disease, it can still be kept under control. One should keep the skin moist always, avoiding those known factors that worsen the condition. Topical medication treatment includes corticosteroids and immunomodulators explicitly prescribed by a board-certified dermatologist.
Is atopic dermatitis contagious?
Atopic dermatitis is not contagious and cannot be spread to other person.
Is atopic dermatitis hereditary?
Atopic dermatitis is a multifactorial disease caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is known that parents with atopy or allergy have a 30 percent chance of bearing a child affected by atopic dermatitis.
