What is atopic dermatitis?

Eczema is a skin disease. It is mainly found in children but adults also suffer from it. Generally, it is perceived as dry skin accompanied by redness but also itching. On fair skin, the red area can sometimes turn brown. On darker skin types, the skin may change colors as eczema impacts pigmentation.

      The phases of eczema: where are you?

      Two phases are identifiable in having eczema.

      • The so-called "acute" phase:

      This period is when the skin is most prone to irritation. At this time, the skin itches or even burns sometimes. The skin is also red and the dryness is omnipresent. It is swollen and at times it may even bleed.

      • The so-called “non-acute” phase:

      This phase is a sort of pause, a calmer moment when the skin is less irritated. Visually, it is less red, less swollen. The skin remains dry, with small dead skin that peels and it may scratch.

      These two phases are not rhythmed in the same way according to the individuals. But the care must be adapted according to the phases to best meet the needs of this one!
