Eczema and psoriasis: the right way to wash without causing irritation

It is possible to wash without irritating your atopic skin! Just be sure to use your hands and choose suitable products.

 

Leave the accessories

Hands are the best way to wash children's skin without risking further irritation. Avoid the use of flannels or body puffs, as these can cause friction and attack the already sensitive skin. What’s more, these bathroom accessories tend to be nests for germs.

No harsh towel drying

Once out of the water, avoid harsh towel drying. Gently patting the body dry is the best way to avoid reactivating the itching sensation. This also helps keep a certain amount of moisture on the skin, which makes it easier to apply emollient.

Eczema and psoriasis: the right shampoo for your scalp

How gently you wash your children's hair and scalp is as important as the way you wash the rest of their body, especially since children often have eczema or psoriasis outbreaks on their scalp. Choose a mild dermatological shampoo for frequent use. Avoid perfumed products at all costs, as these may irritate your child's already dry scalp.

Eczema and psoriasis: can my child take baths?

Warm, short showers are preferable. But you don't have to avoid baths altogether. As long as the water is lukewarm rather than hot, they don’t spend too long in the bath (maximum 10 minutes) and you don't use foaming and perfumed products or essential oils, baths can be a precious moment of relaxation for your child. After a long day at school, it's a nice way to soothe them, as children with eczema or psoriasis often experience a lot of stress on a daily basis.
