Silcura® AD (atopic dermatitis)

First-line therapy is extremely important in the treatment of atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis, eczema). The tolerability and functionality of the chosen skin care play a key role, therefore. By using the right medicinal skin care to treat mild or moderate eczema, it is often possible to avoid using cortisone or at least reduce its use significantly.

Dry, cracked eczematous skin is particularly susceptible to Staphylococcus aureus infections. In many people, this bacterium already exists on the skin and, as a type of MRSA, it has become a problem in hospitals, where it can lead to infections that are difficult to treat. It also produces bacterial antigens, which perpetuate and exacerbate the atopic eczema. In more than 90% of patients, there is evidence of a high concentration of the bacterium on eczematous skin. The severity of the symptoms correlates with the extent of the colonization.

Silcura® – well-tolerated emulsion with antimicrobial MicroSilver

Silcura® provides a solution in the form of a well-tolerated emulsion with antimicrobial MicroSilver that counteracts Staphylococcus aureus on the epidermis. This allows the degree of skin colonization to be restored to a healthy balance. Constant inflammation often results in intense itching of the reddened, scaly skin. This leads to scratching, which can cause the skin to weep and sometimes also to bleed. An increase in Staphylococcus aureus could be a trigger for the inflammation.

The greater the severity of the AD lesions, the greater the degree of Staphylococcus aureus colonization
