Today I have an interesting product to share with those suffers from eczema, psoriasis, hives, and other skin problems.
If you know me or have been reading my blog, then you would know that I have a skin condition known as Nummular Eczema. It’s an annoying and frustrating condition to have. You’re very lucky if you have perfect skin, don’t take it for granted.
Anyways, I have this patch or should i say lesion of Discoid Eczema or also known as Nummular Eczema that just won’t go away for more than a month now. It’s located on my left ankle. At first it was just a pinhead size but it grew to the size close to 1cm. It was extremely unbearable at night because that’s when it itches the most. I can’t help but to itch it, sometimes til they bleed. It’s like an itch under the skin that you just can’t itch, for those that have eczema I’m sure you know what I mean.
I tried slathering my holygrail Moogoo Irritable skin balm (ISB) religiously but I think my skin is immuned to the balm so it stopped working for me. It does make a perfect sense since I’ve used it for more than a year now. It worked every other time but just not this time. *Sigh* Some might say that that’s not true regarding the fact that certain products will be immune to our skin but it’s so true in my case.
It’s kinda gross because not only does it itches like crazy but it weeps yellowish fluid. When an eczema patch weeps, it means it’s infected. And when they are infected, they heal slower, tend to spread making the lesion wider. Honestly, it worries me.
I gave up on using Moogoo Irritable skin balm because it’s not working well for that particular eczema lesion. Went to Guardian, a local pharmacy to pick up Atopiclair. I’ve not heard much of this brand but I do know it’s for problematic skin like mine so I decided to give it a go. Normally they sell Atopiclair in dermatologists’ office but somehow they make it easier for us to get it now in selected pharmacies. Brilliant idea.
What is Atopiclair?
Atopiclair is a unique, clinically proven non, steroidal cream suitable for flare up and irritation even for babies.
☆Antioxidants such as Vitamin C, E and Grape Seed Extract.
How to use?
Apply a thin coat on affected areas only, 3 times a day. Do not use it as a body lotion. Period.
I used Atopiclair on the stubborn lesion located on my ankle for less than a week and the result surprised me. I know you will too.
The itch stopped almost immediately like 5 minutes after I applied on the itchy, weeping lesion. That night, I slept like a baby without any care in the world because I didn’t feel the need to it at all. Plus point for me 🙂
I applied the cream twice a day for 6 consecutive days and the lesion is almost gone! Only left the hideous mark. I’m sure it’ll go away soon enough:)
Recently I had a severe allergic reaction around the eyes to one of the products I was using. I had swollen eyes including the eyelids, both eyes some more! It was extremely Itchy and I can see little blisters forming under my eyes. Yuck!
Be warned that it’s going to be graphic!
My eyes were so swollen until I had difficulties seeing things. I tried taking antihistamines but it’s still the same. I resort to Atopiclair.
I applied Atopiclair cream on both eyes for 7 days.
This is the result!
I love how non drying it is on the eyes because it contain shea butter, a powerful moisturiser. My eyes are now free of allergies.
Atopiclair cream sure does work on my sensitive, itchy skin. I would recommend it if you have similar symptoms like mine. Do consult your derm before using them on your eyes because the eye are is the most sensitive part.
Atopiclair cream is Rm58.00 (40ml)
