Atopic Dermatitis (Eczma) Chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by dryness and itching is called atopic dermatitis (atopic eczema). It is seen in 10-15% of children and 2-10% of adults. Its most prominent feature is a dry and itchy skin. The reason for this is that the protective layer in the upper layer of the skin is damaged and the skin loses its moisture. We can compare body skin to a house Wall. Just as there is a mortar on a wall that holds bricks and bricks together, our skin also has skin cells and lipids (fats). We can think of the cells in our skin as bricks, and lipids as the mortar that holds the bricks together and gives strength to the wall. Lipids; they are important structures that settle between the cells in the top layer of our skin and strengthen the protective layer of the skin by combining with water. They act as a mortar by being among the cells in the uppermost layer of the skin, and they add strength to the skin’s protective layer by sticking the skin cells together. Lipids in the skin are among the most important components of the top layer of the skin. The most important of these lipids is linoleic acid, which is the most concentrated in the skin. Since linoleic acid cannot be synthesized in the human body, it is a very important fatty acid for the skin that must be taken from external, herbal sources. When linoleic acid which is present in the skin decreases, chronic skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis can occur. In children and adults with dry skin, replacing the reduced fatty acids and moisturizing the skin improves the quality of life.
Linoleic acid; It is a very important fatty acid for the skin. In its deficiency, the protective layer of the skin may deteriorate and dryness, itching and redness due to dryness may occur due to excessive water loss. Linoleic acid, obtained from herbal sources, helps prevent dehydration, reduce dryness, itching and redness due to dryness, and regain the moisture lost by the skin in children and adults with dry skin. In addition, the use of linoleic acid bath products in children and adults with dry skin helps to eliminate the dryness, itching and redness that may occur after bathing.
Used as often as needed.
