What is itching and how can it be treated?
Erythema, edema and itching of the skin can be caused by dry skin, atopic dermatitis, eczema, allergic skin reaction and other skin irritations. Under these conditions, the lipids in the horny layer (also called skin barrier) are damaged, which can induce itching. These lipids, which are mostly ceramides, act as a natural protection against irritation. When this protective barrier is damaged, the water evaporates, causing dry and itchy skin. The weakened skin barrier is also less effective in protecting against the entry of irritating agents into our body, which also causes more itching.
Thus, in conditions such as dry skin, atopic dermatitis, eczema, allergic skin reaction and other skin irritations, the regeneration of the protective skin barrier, through the use of special creams to reduce itching, such as Bepanthene® Eczema, is a fundamental part of treatment.
How does Bepanthene® Eczema repair our skin barrier?
The skin barrier is the outermost layer of the skin. It is a highly organized structure consisting of a succession of lipid layers: lipids with lamellar structure organized in overlapping layers. The main lipids present in these layers are ceramides. Between these layers, natural moisturizers bind water to the skin barrier and ensure the maintenance of adequate hydration.
Eczema in babies and children: Bayer is concerned about this and on its website writes:
When babies and children suffer from eczema, it is not only painful and distressing for them but also difficult and frustrating for parents. It is so difficult to see the little ones suffering when itching and discomfort appear, influencing their mood and sleep routine. Fortunately, there are some tips that we can follow to relieve eczema in youngsters.
Symptoms in infants and children
Eczema usually appears as a red and uncomfortable irritation that can lead to dry, scaly skin. In babies, lesions often start on the forehead, cheeks, chin and thighs and usually appear in the first months of life. In children older than 2 years, it is located mainly in the folds (arms, elbows and behind the knees), ears, neck, wrists, hands and ankles.
Eczema is a very common condition. It is estimated that between 10% and 20% of children are affected by this disease. Although the causes of eczema are not fully known, there are several factors that seem to contribute to its appearance.
Children's skin, and especially that of babies, is more sensitive to environmental influences than adult skin.
Irritating agents such as synthetic fibers, wool, detergents and perfumes can also contribute to the worsening of the situation.
How to treat your child's eczema?
Although the recommendations for the treatment of eczema are identical for both adults, children and babies, as children's skin is particularly delicate, we advise you to consult a health professional. This will certainly clarify how best to help your child. In the meantime, here are some suggestions and advice that may be useful for you and your family:
Short daily baths with warm water (never very hot water) will help your baby's skin and prevent infections. Immediately after bathing, it is very important to hydrate your skin well and keep it hydrated throughout the day. Moisturizing / emollient products can help reduce symptoms such as itching and dry skin.
TIP: Adding oats to your baby's bath can help soften and moisturize the skin.
Preventing "scratching" is very important - permanent scratching damages the surface layer of the skin allowing irritants to enter, which aggravates eczema. Especially at night, putting gloves on your baby can help him sleep better and prevent him from getting hurt.
TIP: In summer, keep your baby's moisturizer in the cold. The fresh can help to soothe your baby's skin when applying the cream.
If your child's Eczema is severe, your doctor may recommend different emollients, topical treatment with cortisone or antibiotics to treat the skin and prevent or treat infections.
Finally, identifying the factors that trigger eczema can help you better manage your skin and your baby's skin. Sometimes it can be difficult to identify what favors its appearance, but it is important to be particularly aware of irritating products, allergens present in the environment and also food allergens. Although food allergies can contribute to the onset of eczema, always consult a doctor before removing any food from their diet.
What about you?
When your child suffers from eczema, it is not only painful and distressing for him but also difficult and frustrating for him. All parents know that watching their child's suffering is terrible, especially when it comes to eczema and you can't control it.
However, it is very important to remember that it is not your fault and that many other parents are going through the same. It may be helpful to find a group that talks about atopic skin and eczema so that you can talk to other parents about similar experiences and share advice.
