Atopy is a skin condition characterized by intense dryness that weakens the skin barrier. The skin barrier no longer protects against damaging external factors, thus allowing irritants or allergens to penetrate, causing a skin reaction. The main symptoms of atopy are itching, which leads to scratching and the appearance of red plaques (known as lesions) that can be painful and can become infected. Atopy progresses through phases of flare-ups with the appearance of visible skin lesions, followed by phases of remission, with no apparent lesions but where the skin barrier remains weakened.
Atopy can affect people of any age: babies, children or adults, and may appear on different areas of the body: face, eyelids, body or hands.
Many factors may trigger or aggravate atopy such as stress, pollution, perspiration or significant changes in weather. There is a genetic factor at play in atopy.
Daily atopy care is necessary to treat the condition and to strengthen the skin barrier.
Once you have been diagnosed by your doctor, there are different types of effective atopy treatments. The more you know about them, the better prepared you can be.
First of all, we recommend that you consult your doctor or dermatologist to provide you with advice and treatment adapted to your type of atopy.
To treat atopy, there are medicinal treatments prescribed by doctors to act on the chronic inflammation. In addition, the implementation of a suitable care routine can reduce dry skin and itching, and can help to space out atopy flare-ups.
