A new treatment for soothing hand eczema

Your hands are your direct link to your environment. Ceaselessly solicited throughout the day, they are submitted daily to external stress and irritants.

Your hands are your direct link to your environment. Ceaselessly solicited throughout the day, they are submitted daily to external stress and irritants.

The hand’s palm being wholly devoid of sebaceous glands, this part of the body owes its protection to a particularly thick layer of callused skin. While sebaceous glands are present on the back of the hand, their number is significantly lower than on other body parts. These factors are responsible for the paradox which is the hands’ relative fragility. The production, by the sebaceous glands, of a protective film on the hands is therefore quite less than on other parts of the body and dehydration is very rapid when hands are exposed to external elements.

While eczema is amongst the most common skin diseases – it is estimated that one third of all dermatological consultations are for some type of eczema – this pathology most frequently affects the hands, specifically.

Eczema of the hands may be caused by environmental factors related to the sufferer’s profession, by frequent washing of the hands, by exposure to chemicals, by allergies or merely by a cutaneous medical condition. This affection can cause itching, dryness and/or lesions.

It is therefore essential to keep your hands well hydrated, even in the absence of any symptoms of dryness. Indeed, regular moisturising of the skin helps restore its hydration and control eczema.

To meet this need, Avene Dermatological Laboratories launches (ou has launched, dépendant de la date de disponibilité du produit) a new treatment which provides relief and controls eczema of the hands, finally: Cicalfate Hand Cream!

Its formula is specifically designed to repair very dry and irritated hands:

  • Softens and soothes skin
