TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2018 /CNW/ - November is eczema awareness month. 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 and anywhere from 10 to 20% of the Canadian population is affected.
Although genetic, immunological and environmental factors play a key role, the specific cause of eczema is not known. While no cure has yet to be found for eczema, and no treatment successfully works for everyone, there are ways to manage eczema to make it more tolerable including: frequent bathing and moisturizer application, as well as the use of over-the-counter (OTC) creams designed for eczema such as Dermakalm.
Dermakalm Eczema Creams are non-greasy, specialized formulations containing aluminum silicate which help provide temporary relief of symptoms of atopic eczema and hand and contact eczema.
Unlike other eczema product offerings, Dermakalm is free of corticosteroids, fragrance, parabens and artificial colouring. Dermakalm helps activate the skin's own repair mechanism through the combination of moisturizing lipids and a mineral complex.
Developed with dermatologists, Dermakalm Eczema Creams are available OTC in adult and infant/children (eight weeks and older) formulations for atopic eczema and in adult formulations for hand and contact eczema.
- Dermakalm Eczema Cream (Face and Body)
- Dermakalm Eczema Cream for Infants and Children (Face and Body, eight weeks+ years old)
- Dermakalm Hand and Contact Eczema Cream
If you've experienced it yourself, you know how frustrating it can be dealing with eczema. Skin ailments can adversely affect an individual's mental well-being and severely influence their personal, professional and social life. Common psychological problems associated with skin issues include feelings of stress, anxiety, anger, depression, shame, social isolation, and low self-esteem.
Dermakalm can help break the cycle, allowing you to reclaim your skin.
