My to-do list to better
live with atopy
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, irritant products, or 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 a steady spray of Avène Thermal Spring Water.
- Opt for suitable dermo-cosmetic make-up.
- 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.
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.
I try to avoid accumulating dust in my home by cleaning regularly, using a vacuum cleaner rather than a broom.
