Selection Of Shampoo And Soap For Patients With Prolonged Atopic Dermatitis?
Well, doctor. I have had atopic dermatitis for 6 months and it has not been cured until now. I want to ask what lotion and shampoo is good for me or not.
Atopic dermatitis is often referred to as atopic eczema. This condition is an inflammation of the skin of unknown cause, but is thought to be related to genetic factors and several triggers. The triggers of atopic dermatitis include chemicals, sweat, hormonal changes before menstruation, infections in the skin, cold and dry weather, dust, animal hair, pollen, wool, and synthetic materials.
Atopic dermatitis can cause complaints in the form of dry, reddish, scaly and rough skin, itching, peeling skin, blisters, and sometimes it can leave marks on the skin. Atopic dermatitis usually recurs 1-3 times a month.
If you have atopic dermatitis, you can try the following tips:
Bathing with plain water, avoid bathing with water too warm
Use soaps, shampoos, detergents that are hypoallergenic, contain moisturizers, and as much as possible choose products that contain the least possible
Use a moisturizer after bathing, for example those containing ceramide, glycerin, squalane, shea butter, sun flower seed oil, jojoba oil
Try not to scratch the itchy skin
Use clothes that are soft, cotton, and not tight
Make sure to rinse off the detergent completely
Pay attention to whether there are factors that trigger / trigger atopic dermatitis, if any, avoid these trigger factors
Avoid sun exposure
Manage stress well
If with the tips above, you feel that atopic dermatitis is still recurring frequently, have infections that cause pus, are very sick, sleep and work is disturbed, or feel that dermatitis is affecting your vision, I suggest that you consult directly with a dermatologist so that you can evaluate it. your skin condition and you can be given maximum treatment.
Management of atopic dermatitis that can be done is to reduce complaints / symptoms that appear, for example with corticosteroids, antihistamines, and ointments containing antibiotics given only when there is a bacterial infection in the skin. The doctor will also give you a special emollient moisturizer to repair the skin barrier and prevent further skin damage.
Hope it can help you,
