Atopic Eczema Overview – NHS Website

Treatment for atopic eczema can help relieve symptoms and improve the outlook over time.

However, there is currently no cure and eczema that is severe has a significant effect on a person’s day to day life. Controlling symptoms is the main objective when looking for treatment options. There are many different options when looking to control and manage eczema, including:

  • Self-care techniques, such as reducing scratching and avoiding triggers.
  • Emollients
  • Soap alternatives such as QV Gentle Wash 350ml
  • Topical corticosteroids that are used to reduce swelling, redness and itching during flare-ups.

QV Gentle Wash 500ml

Many standard soaps that you can buy off of the counter dry the skin out and are therefore not ideal for eczema or dry skin sufferers. Using an emollient-rich liquid cleanser, like QV Gentle Wash 500ml, helps to maintain the skins natural barrier function, offering better protection against dehydration.

A lot of typical soaps will contain an ingredient called Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. SLS for short, can cause contact dermatitis and aggravate eczema by breaking up the layer of oil that prevents skin from drying out. All QV products, including QV Gentle Wash 500ml, are free from SLS.

Make sure to check the ingredients of any skincare products that can be purchased over-the-counter, it’s surprising just how many have it included.

QV Gentle Wash 250g

Dry skin is a common condition usually caused by insufficient oil production in the skin, causing the top layer of skin to dry out.

In effect, the skin’s natural barrier function becomes compromised, resulting in moisture loss. Dry skin can becomes, flaky, itchy or even cracked which can lead to inflammation.

Although dry skin can be experienced anywhere on the body, the most vulnerable areas are those with fewer sebaceous glands. These include the hands, arms and legs. Areas that experience friction, such as ankles and soles of the feet, are also likely to be affected. Dry skin is often linked to sensitivity or irritation.

If it’s clear to your doctor that you have dry skin, they may do some tests to see what is causing it. Dry skin can be caused by a number of conditions including eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis. Soap alternatives such as QV Gentle Wash 250g help improve dry skin by naturally providing moisture.

While QV Gentle Wash 250g can only be used during bath or shower time, other dry skin treatments, including creams and ointments, may be recommended by your doctor.

QV Gentle Wash 500g

QV Gentle Wash 500g is known as an emollient. Emollients are medical moisturisers which lubricate the skin by creating a barrier of moisture. QV Gentle Wash 500g and others like it are very important in the treatment of conditions in which the skin is dry and itchy, for example eczema and psoriasis.

When applied to the skin, emollients repair the damaged natural barrier, and help protect it from irritation and infections, reducing redness, swelling and itching.

Available as QV Gentle Wash 500g, emollients can come in many different formulations, including soap substitutes, creams, bath additives and sprays. The majority of them can be purchased over-the-counter, and some only available on prescription.

QV Baby Gentle Wash 500g

QV also produces its own QV Baby range of products. QV Baby skincare products consist of a range of gentle hydrating cleansers and moisturisers specially developed for babies’ delicate skin.

QV Baby Gentle Wash 500g is free from colour, fragrance and other common irritants. You may want to look into these products before using other QV products for your baby.

QV Baby Gentle Wash 500g is:

  • pH balanced
  • Fragrance, soap and colour free
  • Dermatologist recommended
  • Formulated with Vitamin B3 to help support a healthy skin barrier and natural protective properties

QV Gentle Wash On Prescription

Nationally, getting QV Gentle Wash on prescription is likely to be a lot more difficult due to recent NHS guidance. Emollient bath additives and wash products such as QV Gentle Wash are no longer considered part of ‘total emollient therapy’.

There is a lack of convincing evidence to support QV Gentle Wash on prescription and other bath/wash products. The amount of emollient deposited on the skin during bathing/showering is likely to be far lower than when a cream or ointment is directly applied.
