Epaderm can help break the itch cycle

Symptoms of eczema

Although the exact causes are unknown, when someone has eczema, the skin's natural oils are lacking. Moisture escapes from the skin and it dries and cracks, allowing irritants and bacteria in. This causes inflammation, leading to redness and a powerful itch that demands relief. Flexural areas such as elbows and knees are often the most affected by eczema.

Scratching eczema leads to skin damage, increases inflammation and can cause bleeding, secondary infection and thickening of the skin. The more you scratch, the more the skin itches. The itch-scratch cycle can do more than just damage the skin, it can cause sleep disturbance.

It’s a vicious cycle, but it’s one that emollients, can help to break. Eczema has a tendency to flare up, which is why persistent treatment with Epaderm Cream and Epaderm Ointment - even after the area appears clear - often remedies the area. The skin tends to be dry and itchy in between flare-ups.

Epaderm for eczema

Formulated with clinically proven ingredients, the Epaderm range is suitable for eczema as it moisturises and softens the skin.

Epaderm Cream is a 2-in-1 emollient that can be used as a skin moisturiser and cleanser. It relieves the symptoms of dry skin and improves skin hydration in 2 weeks.

Developed by dermatologists, 3-in-1 Epaderm Ointment can be used directly on the skin, in the bath or as a skin cleanser   .
