Why moisturising is important if you suffer from dermatitis.

Keeping your skin hydrated and intact is one of the most important things you can do to help control your dermatitis.

People living with dermatitis have a damaged stratum corneum (skin barrier).

Dermatitis comes in a number of forms, among which is eczema, contact dermatitis, cradle cap, dandruff.

Skin with dermatitis is more sensitive to irritants, allergens, bacteria and other invaders.

Sufferers deal with chronic dry, itchy skin which can flare up inflamed, with rash and for some even blisters.

Scratching of the affected area needs to be avoided to prevent infection.

 

Moisturise Frequently

Moisturisers help protect the outermost layer of the skin known as the stratum corneum (skin barrier).

To prevent flare-ups, moisturise on a regular basis to prevent excessive drying

The more oil in a moisturizer, the better it usually is at treating and controlling dermatitis conditions
