Questions about eczema

Treating localized eczema on the body and/or scalp with natural solutions may raise questions.

How to use our treatments to treat eczema? Below is the list of eczema questions we face most frequently and our advices. We respond to them with the transparency and seriousness that are customary to us. 

As a reminder, our Pso Natura treatments are not medicinal solutions, but dermo-cosmetic treatments composed of active ingredients from nature.

The Pso Natura line, for whom?

Very often, you ask us if our treatments will be able to treat your eczema that has been present for several years. Without a doubt, the answer is yes. We are aware of the effectiveness of our care which is not linked to the age of the eczema. However, depending on the severity of the eczema, treatment may require more than a month.

As a precautionary measure, we do not recommend the use of Pso Natura Regenerative Complex in children aged less than 4 years. The Rich Cream et Shampoo As for them, they can be used without problem. However, both of these products contain essential oils, although their presence is extremely low (less than 1%), so caution should be exercised in infants and children. We advise you to do a test on the inside of the elbow to see if your child develops any allergic reactions.

For optimal effectiveness of the Regenerative Complex, it is recommended to use the fibrous side of the loofah sponge, supplied with the treatment. However, a child's epidermis is much thinner than that of an adult. The treatment should not be aggressive. So, if the skin is too sensitive, it is preferable to use the white 100% cotton side or to apply the Complex directly with your fingers (lathering it, since it is the foam which releases the active ingredients of the treatment ).

Our treatments are effective on different types of eczema. Find more information on the different types of eczema, such as atopic dermatitis or allergic eczema. Also learn to distinguish vitiligo from eczema and in any case have your disease diagnosed by a general practitioner or a dermatologist, even remotely.

Eczema questions on sensitive areas

We do not recommend the use of Pso Natura Complex, with the natural fiber loofah sponge which is made to produce light exfoliation. These parts are very sensitive, so exfoliation is absolutely not recommended. Pso Natura Rich Cream, on the other hand, can be used without problem.

For the face and neck, the composition of Pso Natura Regenerative Complex is not contraindicated but, the skin being more sensitive, the use of the loofah must be very gentle. If you feel that your skin is too fragile, apply the treatment by tapping or use the soft side of the loofah, not the fibrous side, or review the intensity of your massage.

Avoid all contact with eyes. There is no risk, but since the formula is very concentrated and bactericidal, it can cause very unpleasant stinging in the eyes. In case of contact, rinse with plenty of water.

For any area affected by eczema, good hydration is an important improvement factor. Hydration reduces skin turnover and limits itching. We recommend applying a moisturizer after each application of the Complex. Suffering skin requires a lot of hydration.

Exfoliated skin is always more fragile. For any sun exposure, it is important to protect your skin well with sunscreen high and adapted to your skin.

The formula of Regenerative Complex is very concentrated, so the foam produced during the massage can be irritating to the eyes. We therefore do not recommend its use on this part of the face. It's safe but the irritation could be very unpleasant. OUR Creme Riche, for its part, can be used very well.

How to use the Pso Natura Regenerative Complex?

This highly concentrated foaming treatment is formulated without water. When you open your jar, you will notice that the dough is very firm. This is normal. To use it, if the dough is too firm, we advise you to add the equivalent of a tablespoon of mineral water directly to the pot. The texture will soften slightly in a few hours.

The active ingredients of the treatment are released when foam forms. It is therefore essential to foam the paste well, with lukewarm water. Very easy to use, here is the protocol to follow:

1. Run the loofah sponge under water on both sides to soften the natural fibers and leave it saturated with water. Don't wring it out.

2. Place a dab of treatment on the loofah, vegetable fiber side.

3. Go back under water for 1 second, and pat-massage the loofah on your hand first to create a good lather. If you only get a few bubbles, run under water again for 1 second, and lather again. The foam should be quite abundant.

4. Then massage the already moistened areas to be treated, firmly, but without attacking your skin. 5-10 seconds approximately/zone.

5. Rinse with lukewarm or cold water (be careful, hot water attacks the skin) and dry the skin without rubbing.

You will see it yourself, using the treatment is very simple, when you understand that it is appropriate to lather it. You can even use it in your shower to save time.

Remember that regularity of treatment is essential to achieve real results.

Duration of treatment

During the treatment phase, the Complex must be used morning and evening. On average, it takes 1 month for the traces to completely disappear. This is just an average. Some have faster results, for others with very resistant eczema, 6-8 weeks are necessary. Use of the Complex should not be stopped too quickly. There is a whole process of skin reconstruction that should not be neglected. The scales will first disappear, then the skin will become slightly pink and very thin. Treatment must be continued until the skin thickens and becomes healthy again.

Be careful, however, to never interrupt a treatment based on medication (particularly cortisone) in progress. It is better to combine it at the start and space out its use as your skin improves, until you only use Pso Natura treatments.

Then, it is only appropriate to maintain it 2-3 times a week, or even less depending on the case. It often happens that regrowth is very weak or even non-existent, even if generally speaking, we observe that areas of friction, such as elbows mainly, often need to be maintained frequently. At the slightest appearance of a plaque or an itch, it is then appropriate to use the Complex again once a day for just a few days to stop the progression of the eczema plaques.

After the Pso Natura treatment, to overcome eczema

No, it is not necessary to soap yourself after applying the Complex, for 2 reasons:

  • The active ingredients of the Complex already provide a bactericidal, therefore cleansing, action, so there is no need to add more.
  • The exfoliation provided by the loofah can make your skin more sensitive, so there is no point in adding aggression with the use of a cleansing soap.

On the other hand, after your treatment with the Pso Natura Regenerating Complex, you should hydrate your skin with a paraben-free moisturizer, ideally our Rich Restructuring Cream. In addition to hydrating your skin and soothing itching, it will reinforce the action of the Complex. For any area affected by eczema, good hydration is a factor in improvement.
