Red cheeks, spots on the face and body, eczema, rash­es, itch­ing are all symp­toms of atopic der­mati­tis. As a rule, it is asso­ci­at­ed with food or non-food aller­gies, increas­es before or after SARS, has sea­son­al exac­er­ba­tions (in spring and autumn), and when the child feels con­sis­tent­ly well, his man­i­fes­ta­tions sub­side.

Sci­en­tists still have not yet agreed on what exact­ly caus­es atopic der­mati­tis and how exact­ly it occurs. But it has been estab­lished that all skin prob­lems, and atopic der­mati­tis is no excep­tion, are asso­ci­at­ed with an emo­tion­al state.

To com­bat atopic der­mati­tis, in addi­tion to con­trol­ling the emo­tion­al state, it is equal­ly impor­tant to pay atten­tion to the con­di­tion of the skin. Here, der­ma­tol­o­gists are reas­sur­ing: with prop­er care and sup­port for a sta­ble remis­sion, this prob­lem can dis­ap­pear when the child grows up. It is known and proven that the mech­a­nism of occur­rence of atopic der­mati­tis is asso­ci­at­ed with the pro­tein filag­grin, one of the struc­tur­al ele­ments of the skin. With a cer­tain com­bi­na­tion of fac­tors not relat­ed to the skin (just about them there are dis­putes in the sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty), its defi­cien­cy leads to changes in the skin, exces­sive dry­ness, and itch­ing. The “atopic march” begins — atopic der­mati­tis devel­ops.

It is impor­tant to under­stand that the skin of a child, com­pared to the skin of an adult, is less per­fect: it is thin­ner, it does not have seba­ceous glands that feed it, but more fat and blood. There­fore, it is more reac­tive and more vul­ner­a­ble. The pH lev­el of a baby’s skin is high­er than the pH lev­el of an adult.

If your child is atopic, the first thing to think about is mois­tur­iz­ing and main­tain­ing the hydro-lipid bal­ance of the skin. Today, der­ma­tol­o­gists rec­om­mend first of all includ­ing spe­cial mois­tur­iz­ers, emol­lients con­tain­ing com­po­nents relat­ed to the skin in the care of atopic skin. After an exam­i­na­tion and con­sul­ta­tion with a der­ma­tol­o­gist, addi­tion­al treat­ments for atopic der­mati­tis can also be pre­scribed: oint­ments and creams against strong man­i­fes­ta­tions, but emol­lient as a basic care is real­ly the best friend of atopics.

For those whose skin is exces­sive­ly dry and atopic, only reli­able, safe and proven der­mo­cos­met­ics are need­ed. Proven among der­ma­tol­o­gists and pedi­a­tri­cians, BABÉ Lab­o­ra­to­rios der­mo­cos­met­ics, which have been pro­duced in Spain since 1994, are designed to solve the most com­mon skin prob­lems for chil­dren and adults, and atopic der­mati­tis is no excep­tion. The PEDIATRIC line has two prod­ucts against the main symp­toms of atopic der­mati­tis — a chil­dren’s emol­lient cream for dry and atopic skin, 200 ml and a chil­dren’s face balm for dry skin with Omega 3.6 and 9, 50 ml.

The for­mu­las are based on three unique com­plex­es of herbal ingre­di­ents: Skin Calm®, Skin Repair® and Skin Defense®. Their syn­er­gis­tic action soothes, restores and pro­tects sen­si­tive atopic skin from exter­nal influ­ences and dam­age.

Chil­dren’s emol­lient cream for dry and atopic skin is a real must-have for atopic par­ents. For­mu­lat­ed with Skin Calm® con­tain­ing an anti­his­t­a­mine com­po­nent, it breaks the itch-scratch cycle where one trig­gers the oth­er and may take a long time to com­plete. The com­po­si­tion, enriched with Omega 3,6 and 9, restores the hydro-lipid lay­er of the skin, pro­vid­ing deep nour­ish­ment to extreme­ly dry skin. Also, the tool has a direct­ed effect on inflam­ma­to­ry ele­ments, reduc­ing the num­ber of bac­te­ria, and relieves itch­ing, giv­ing an instant feel­ing of com­fort.

Chil­dren’s face balm for dry skin with Omega 3,6 and 9 acts in three direc­tions at once: soft­ens irri­ta­tions, mois­tur­izes even the deep lay­ers of the skin and pro­vides instant com­fort. Its for­mu­la strength­ens the skin’s nat­ur­al bar­ri­er, reduc­ing the risk of infec­tion. One appli­ca­tion is enough to instant­ly relieve itch­ing and tight­ness. Designed for the most demand­ing skin, the cream is free of alco­hol, parabens, min­er­al oils, preser­v­a­tives and fra­grances, test­ed by der­ma­tol­o­gists and pedi­a­tri­cians.

The BABÉ Lab­o­ra­to­rios expert rec­om­mends: “If your child is diag­nosed with atopic der­mati­tis, this is not a rea­son to pan­ic. You need to under­stand that the baby has espe­cial­ly sen­si­tive and reac­tive skin and, most like­ly, it needs to be observed in terms of aller­gies and issues of the gas­troin­testi­nal tract. Today, most even severe forms of atopy are man­age­able, and the soon­er you get test­ed, the more like­ly you are to quick­ly for­get about this prob­lem. ”


  • Fol­low a diet that excludes indi­vid­ual and gen­er­al aller­gens, as well as foods that increase the over­all lev­el of IgE (his­t­a­mine lib­er­a­tors).
  • Avoid clothes made from arti­fi­cial fab­rics.
  • Use emol­lients at least twice a day on the entire body and face.
  • Bathe the baby in soft water, do not rub the skin with a tow­el, apply an emol­lient after each bath.
  • Do not neglect sun­screen even in the city and dur­ing remis­sion.
