Relieve Eczema Flare Ups


Atopic eczema (dermatitis) is a chronic, itchy, superficial inflammation of the skin. The skin lesions can become secondarily infected and this is a common cause of an exacerbation of eczema. It is important to protect the skin from further drying and irritation and to prevent scratching.

An itch usually results in scratching, which increases inflammation and stimulates nerve fibres, leading to more itching and scratching. As the itch-scratch cycle continues, it changes the integrity of the skin resulting in barrier damage. For healthy skin, water and glycerin are needed. Bathing can remove glycerin from the skin, hence washing with a product rich in glycerin helps to restore what is lost and maintain skin hydration levels.

Using emollient bath oils, washes and moisturising products like QV Flare Up products can help break the itch-scratch cycle, relieve flare-ups or symptoms of the flare-ups and help soothe and improve the condition of the skin.


The symptoms of atopic eczema (dermatitis) can be very distracting and disturbing for the sufferer. The QV Flare Up Range of Wash, Cream and Bath Oil provides for all over, all day  therapy for flare ups.
