When to use the Flareup range?
QV Flareup foam wash is to be used for severe eczema or during flareup. Typically there are high counts of Staphylococus aureus bacteria on the skin. The skin lesions can become secondarily infected and this is a common cause of an exacerbation of eczema. As the density of colonisation of S. aureus increases, so does the severity of atopic dermatitis. It may exacerbate eczema by producing toxins that perpetuate inflammation of the skin. A reduction of bacterial levels has shown to be accompanied by an improvement in the condition. it is important to protect the skin from further drying and irritation and to prevent scratching. The ingredients in QV flareup range are targetted to manage the infection and prevent further drying of the skin during cleansing.
Once your eczema’s flareup is managed, you will need to change to hypoallergenic or natural mild daily cleanser. You can also use a hypoallergenic cleanser once your flareup is managed
