Dry and irritable skin
AtopiControl Face 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.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good skin tolerability on patients with atopic skin.

Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch Care Spray can be used as an adjunctive care product to Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream.
Eucerin AtopiControl Care Cream can be used as adjunctive care to Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream or in addition to a pharmaceutical product.
Yes, so long as your child is three years or older.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No. Atopic Dermatitis is not contagious and it cannot be passed from one person to the next through skin contact.
Eucerin AtopiControl is a range of dermo-cosmetic products that care for dry and irritable skin and also atopic skin during inactive phases and when flare-ups occur. Each has been clinically and dermatologically proven to reduce dryness, scaling and tension while relieving itching and all are proven to be compatible with atopic skin.
The Basic Care lotions and creams contain a combination of Omega-6-fatty acids and Licochalcone A to replenish skin, restoring its natural barrier and making it more resilient. As well as hydrating skin intensively, these products reduce the roughness, itch and tightness associated with atopic skin.
The Active Care range includes Eucerin's new AtopiControl Acute Care Cream. Its skin caring properties significantly improve the skin's appearance during flare-up phases and help reduce the use of hydrocortisone during flare-ups. A clinical study shows a comparable cosmetic effect of the skin caring properties of Eucerin 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. The other product in the Active Care range is Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-itch Care Spray which, as its name suggests, gives instant relief to itchy skin.
No fragrances, colourants or parabens have been used in this range and products are suitable for children and babies over the age of 3 months (or 3 years for Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch Care Spray).
