Tips for the prevention of atopic dermatitis

  • Shower instead of taking a bath (not too hot!)
  • Wash new clothes more than once before wearing them. Do not use fabric softener
  • Keep fingernails short, to minimize the risk of infection when scratching
  • Avoid clothing that scratches the skin. Keep sweating and mental stress at a minimum
  • Try aromatherapy treatments
  • Effective skin care lotions (panthenol, evening primrose oil, etc.)
  • For moistened skin: wet compresses, towels
  • Dry skin: rich creams (do not use soap !!)
