It is essential to relieving the skin symptoms of eczema through the application of a cream. For effective treatment of eczema, the primary goal is to calm inflammation and itching. Finally, it is necessary to moisturize and restore the cutaneous barrier. This will reduce scalp, redness, and plaque on the skin.

Dermocorticoide creams anti-eczema: attention to side effects

To quell eczema attacks, the first reaction of dermatologists is to prescribe local treatments based on topical corticosteroids. Used since the 1950s, topical corticosteroids are medicines used to treat various skin diseases. They come in the form of cortisone creams, lotions or ointments. There are several different intensities of local corticoids treatment. These treatments for eczema are known to act quickly. They have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness, swelling, oozing and the thickness of eczema plaques. 

However, cortisone creams are drugs for which you must scrupulously respect the instructions for use. Local cortisone treatments stop gradually once the inflammation is over (there is usually a treatment for 7 to 15 days maximum). Attention, a sudden stop of the treatment can bring about a rebound effect and a recrudescence of the symptoms.

If used incorrectly (overdose) or used too long, corticosteroid creams can give rise to side effects. We can note a refinement of the skin, stretch marks, disorders of pigmentation of the skin, the appearance of vessels, difficulties to heal and sometimes even pimples. In addition, corticosteroid creams for eczema are not compatible with sun exposure, they should be used in the evening preferably.

Cortisone creams are therefore not a solution to treat eczema in the long term. They only calm the inflammation but do not act on the hydration and the repair of the skin. A moisturizer must be used in parallel.

Eczema moisturizing-emollient creams: important but not enough

Skin that suffers from eczema is parched because it has difficulty keeping the body water. It is also damaged by the effects of inflammation.

An emollient moisturizing cream will, therefore, help restore the cutaneous barrier of eczematous skin. It will act to restore the lipids between the cells and especially to retain the water in the skin. It will leave skin softer and smoother. The skin barrier will be strengthened and thus better protect irritants, preventing future outbreaks of eczema.

Why favor a natural cream to treat eczema?

Corticosteroid creams alone are not enough to meet the needs of skin that has eczema. They can not be used in the long term because they may cause side effects.

To choose an effective eczema cream, it must be anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and nourishing, emollient and restorative. We also advise you to choose creams that are free of allergens and chemical ingredients to avoid over-ignition.

It is, therefore, preferable to choose natural solutions such as Body Cream - Nourishing Olive Leaves.

You can also directly use natural remedies such as Aloe Vera gel to soothe the itching of adult eczema or Calendula oil for infant eczema.

The different types of eczema

Atopic eczema

Atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory and non-contagious skin disease.  Its origin is genetic, it often develops in families that suffer from respiratory allergies, hay fever, and asthma. The immunological and cutaneous abnormalities create in the patient suffering from atopic eczema, an abnormal cutaneous barrier (with defects of structure). The skin therefore poorly fulfills its protective function. Thus, volatile allergenic substances in the environment (mites, pollen, dust, animal hair) easily penetrate the poorly protected epidermis. They come into contact with skin cells of immune defense, causing an inappropriate inflammatory reaction.

This explains the different symptoms of eczema: red patches, burning and itching, vesicles, crusts, dander and dry skin. Symptoms often focus on the face, back of the elbows and knees and it is also possible to have some on the hands, feet and armpits and other parts of the body.

It should be noted that atopic eczema is a highly developed disease in children and infants.

Contact eczema 

Contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis is a local allergic reaction of the skin to allergenic elements. Allergy is often developed during repeated contact with irritating chemical ingredients in the laundry, skincare and cosmetics, and synthetic fibers in the clothing. Contact eczema usually concerns adults.
