Acute Care Cream
Eucerin's new Acute Care Cream breaks the vicious circle of itchy flare-ups with soothing care. Its skin caring properties help reduce the use of hydrocortisone during flare-ups. A clinical study shows a comparable cosmetic effect of the skin caring properties of Acute Care Cream to the effects of a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the complexion of atopic skin. AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a pharmaceutical product and is not meant to replace one.
Apply as often as needed on the affected areas to intensively care, calm and soothe skin. Eucerin Acute Care Cream is a unique complex which includes regenerating Omega-6- fatty acids (Evening Primrose Oil and Grape Seed Oil), soothing Licochalcone A (an extract from the licorice root), anti-bacterial Decandiol and cooling Menthoxypropanediol. It has been clinically and dermatologically proven for compatibility on atopic skin in adults, children and babies from the age of 3 months.
To minimise the risk of skin irritation and allergies, it is cortisone-free, fragrance-free, colourant-free and paraben-free.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good skin tolerability on patients with atopic skin.

How To Use

What is the difference between Eucerin Soothing Cream and Eucerin Soothing Lotion?

Will Eucerin Soothing Care products cure my Atopic Dermatitis?
There is no cure as such for this disease but applying Soothing Cream as part of a daily skin care routine can alleviate some of the discomfort.
Is Eucerin Soothing Lotion suitable for use on children?
Yes, so long as your child is three months or older.
What is meant by the “vicious circle of atopic skin”?
This describes the constant dry, itchy skin cycle experienced by people with Atopic Dermatitis. Irritation begins so the sufferer scratches. The scratching causes inflammation which leads to skin dryness which causes barrier dysfunction. This, in turn, provides a humid growth environment for Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to colonise, causing irritation and further scratching. And so the vicious circle continues.
