Dermakalm Eczema Cream is new at PhaMix, and for those who suffer from eczema, this is good news indeed!
Also known as dermatitis, eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry skin with very itchy red patches that may ooze, become scaly, crusted or hardened. Eczema can affect any part of the body. It’s estimated that 10% -20% of the population suffer from eczema at some point in their lives. And although there is no cure, there are ways to manage eczema to make it more tolerable. This is where Dermakalm Eczema Cream comes in.
Developed with dermatologists, Dermakalm Eczema creams are non-greasy and free of corticosteroids, fragrances, parabens and artificial coloring. Although steroidal creams have long been prescribed for treating eczema flare-ups, usage does not cure this skin condition.
Dermakalm Eczema Creams are non-prescription and can be used as part of your regular routine for temporary relief of symptoms of atopic eczema and hand and contact eczema. They are specially formulated to help provide temporary relief of symptoms of atopic eczema, such as itching, red spots, dry skin, scaling, oozing, abrasions, and hardening of the skin. It helps to temporarily relieve irritation and itching. For use beyond 4 months of time, consult a healthcare practitioner.
Dermakalm to Manage Eczema
November may have been Eczema Awareness month, but those with eczema know that it’s a year-round recurring condition that requires regular maintenance. Being a chronic condition, eczema must be managed daily. Establish a routine that works for you and stick to it. Maintaining this routine, even when your eczema is under control, is key.
Dermakalm Eczema Cream was developed to help provide temporary relief of symptoms associated with atopic eczema. Apply a thin layer to the affected area 2-3 times per day. Along with using a topical treatment to help provide temporary relief, other tips to follow that may make living with eczema easier include:
• Frequent bathing or showering with lukewarm water, then applying a moisturizer to reduce the chances of a flare-up
• Using mild or non-soap cleansers
• Choosing loose cotton clothing or soft fabrics
• Learning what triggers your eczema and doing your best to avoid these
When the temperatures drop, skin tends to become more fragile and it can trigger eczema flare-ups. Investing in a humidifier for your home may also improve the condition.
Indicated for Infants and Children
Although the actual cause of eczema is currently unknown, this skin condition seems to be a result of hereditary, genetic and environmental factors. Atopic dermatitis affects approximately 10-20% of children. The good news is that more than 70% of those cases improve or clear up by the age of 5 or 6.
Dermakalm Eczema Cream for Infants and Children can be used for children 8 weeks and older to help provide temporary relief from itching and irritation. Although babies can get this condition anywhere on the body, eczema most often affects the cheeks and the joints of the arms and legs. Along with the previously mentioned tips, keeping your little ones cool by not overdressing or using too many blankets can also minimize the chances of a flare up.
Dermakalm has also developed specialized topical treatments for psoriasis and facial redness. See the full selection here at PhaMix.
