atopy

L'atopie en détails

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.

Daily

  • 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.

Christelle

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.

Vincent

I try to avoid accumulating dust in my home by cleaning regularly, using a vacuum cleaner rather than a broom.

How my skin works

Atopy is a complex multi-factoral disease, which is associated with two anomalies: skin with damaged barrier, that makes it dry and unusually sensitive; a more sensitive immune system to allergens, making the skin more reactive.

NORMAL SKIN
The skin fulfills its function of protective barrier:

  • Skin cells and cement are of good quality.
  • Water evaporates normally and in small amounts.
  • Allergens cannot enter.

ATOPIC SKIN
The skin does not fulfill its function
Eczema:

  • Skin cells and cement are of poor quality.
  • Too much water evaporates.
  • Skin is dehydrated and dry.
  • It lets allergens enter more easily, which may provoke an inflammatory response.
