Your child can’t stop scratching? His skin is dry and rough? Maybe he is suffering from infantile eczema… Indeed, it affects 2 to 4% of children under 5 years old.
Infantile eczema is different from the adult contact allergy eczema. Infantile eczema (or atopic dermatitis) most frequently appears around the age of 3 months. It can be caused by genetic factors: indeed, 60% of parents of atopic children are themselves suffering from atopy. Frequently, allergy runs in the family.
The symptoms of infantile eczema are an itchy red rash (often on the cheeks and forehead), a dry and rough skin, and an intense itching behind the knees and in the bends of the arms, wrists, ankles and neck. Children with eczema are often very reactive to their environment.
Treatment of atopic eczema often consists of antihistamines which decrease the itching, of hydrating products and of creams with cortisone (which are often efficient but can also have important side effects if used for a long time or frequently: cortisone, as other corticosteroids, is comparable to hormones. It can make the skin more fragile and have numerous unwanted effects on the mood, bone density, etc. It is therefore important to limit this type of treatment to its bare minimum, and when possible, to use only hydrating products which are cortisone-free, and as pure as possible).
Children and babies suffering from eczema have a dry and cracked skin, which lets irritants penetrate. It is therefore very important to hydrate the skin in addition to the treatment. The Hydrating Gel Plus HS is ideal for this, thanks to its exceptional long-lasting hydrating effect, and to its very pure composition (only 8 ingredients, and 0% paraben, 0% silicone (dimethicone), 0% mineral oil, 0% fragrance, 0% EDTA, 0% lanoline).
