What is eczema ?
Eczema is a skin condition that causes red, itchy patches. To prevent the condition from getting worse and lasting longer, you need to treat your child's atopic skin.
The symptoms of eczema
Atopic dermatitis presents as red, itchy, dry and scaly skin rashes. There are several lesions that identify atopic skin and eczema, which can be found on the forehead, cheeks, chin and in the folds of the arms and legs.
In short, atopic eczema in babies causes crying, wriggling and sleep disturbances due to itching that cannot be relieved.
Causes of eczema
Eczema is a common skin disease affecting nearly 1 in 5 children. At present, there are many identified causes of atopic dermatitis:
- The environment
- Fabrics such as wool or synthetics
- Irritants found in detergents or soaps
- Food or environmental allergies (mites, pollen, animals).
Cortisone creams to relieve eczema
When your child suffers from eczema, the medical profession most often prescribes eczema creams with cortisone to relieve inflammatory flare-ups. Cortisone and its derivatives (corticosteroids) work because of their anti-inflammatory action which prevents redness, pain and swelling.
Cortisone is a naturally occurring hormone in our body in the form of cortisol and is an effective treatment for eczema.
However, an eczema cream with cortisone works at the moment, but does not treat the problem in depth. In addition, it dries out the already fragile skin and must be combined with a moisturising cream to be applied daily.
In addition to corticoids, most of these creams contain ingredients that should be avoided for baby's fragile skin. It is no longer a secret that conventional cosmetics contain numerous allergens and endocrine disruptors:
- Surfactants (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate)
- Mineral oils from petrochemicals (Paraffin)
In light of this, it is advisable to look for cortisone-free eczema creams and pay attention to the labels. Indeed, some cortisone-free eczema creams contain petroleum jelly, an ingredient derived from petrochemicals and very polluting for the environment.
Eczema creams without cortisone
Babies and young children with atopic skin with eczema have a skin barrier that is even more permeable to ingredients. It is therefore important to use natural skin care products such as the cortisone-free baby eczema creams.
With this in mind, Laboratoires Téane have developed an emollient cream for atopic eczema, certified organic and rated 100/100 on the Yuka application. Our 100% natural, cortisone-free eczema cream is enriched with our patented active ingredient, Cassia Alata. A plant from Madagascar that has many virtues: repairing, soothing, anti-inflammatory and antifungal. In fact, 100% of those who have used it are convinced and recommend Téane's emollient cream for caring for baby's skin.
A perfect alternative to traditional cortisone treatments that can weaken your children's skin in the long term!
