With regenerating, soothing, anti-itch, anti-bacterial and cooling ingredients
Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream
Eucerin's new AtopiControl Acute Care Cream breaks the vicious circle of itchy flare-ups with soothing care. Its skin caring properties help reduce the use of hydrocortisone during flare-ups. A clinical study shows a comparable cosmetic effect of the skin caring properties of AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to the effects of a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the complexion of atopic skin. AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a pharmaceutical product and is not meant to replace one.
Apply as often as needed on the affected areas to intensively care, calm and soothe skin. Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is a unique complex which includes regenerating Omega-6- fatty acids (Evening Primrose Oil and Grape Seed Oil), soothing Licochalcone A (an extract from the licorice root), anti-bacterial Decandiol and cooling Menthoxypropanediol. It has been clinically and dermatologically proven for compatibility on atopic skin in adults, children and babies from the age of 3 months.
To minimise the risk of skin irritation and allergies, it is cortisone-free, fragrance-free, colourant-free and paraben-free.

Is Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch Care Spray suitable for use on children?
Yes, so long as your child is three years or older.
How much product/cream do you need for the following areas: Face, one leg, one arm in table spoons?
There are no clear cut rules about this. Usage should be liberate and repeated (patients usually apply too little amounts of moisturizers). An indication of the amount needed might be drawn from the sunscreen rule: 2mg / cm2, meaning approx. 35g for an average adult body.
How should the Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Cream be used?
The Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Cream may be applied alone in acute phases with mild to moderate symptoms or with medication for severe flare-ups. The pharmaceutical product must always be applied first, followed by the cosmetic skin care. Depending on the dose, this may only be relevant for the morning application with subsequent applications only needing the skin care cream. Basic care products are not designed for acute flares but are intended for the symptom-free intervals between flare-ups.
Will Eucerin AtopiControl products cure my Atopic Dermatitis?
There is no cure as such for this disease but applying AtopiControl Care Cream as part of a daily skin care routine can alleviate some of the discomfort.
What is meant by the “vicious circle of atopic skin”?
This describes the constant dry, itchy skin cycle experienced by people with Atopic Dermatitis. Irritation begins so the sufferer scratches. The scratching causes inflammation which leads to skin dryness which causes barrier dysfunction. This, in turn, provides a humid growth environment for Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to colonise, causing irritation and further scratching. And so the vicious circle continues.
Is Atopic Dermatitis the same as eczema?
No. Eczema is a general term for any inflammation of the skin. Atopic Dermatitis is a form of eczema, so is also known as Atopic Eczema, but there are several other skin diseases that are eczemas but not Atopic Dermatitis.
Is Atopic Dermatitis contagious?
No. Atopic Dermatitis is not contagious and it cannot be passed from one person to the next through skin contact.
