National Eczema Awareness Month 2015

Research has shown that atopic eczema is caused by a dynamic interaction between genetic and environmental factors. But Malaysians in general tend to try improper and traditional treatment for atopic eczema, an inflammatory, relapsing, non-contagious and itchy skin disorder.

This is caused by much misinformation and so many people offering cure-all solutions for eczema in Malaysia.

The experts believes that a well-integrated and medically-monitored care plan will allow people with eczema to lead a comfortable life even if the skin disorder is currently incurable. Hence, Atopiclair is introduced.
Atopiclair is a unique, clinically proven, non-steroidal treatment that can be used during flare and remission phases of atopic dermatitis (eczema). It is steroid-free, scent-free and paraben-free, safe even for infants* and relieves itching, burning and pain associated with the skin condition. It prevents loss of skin moisture for up to 72 hours and offers longer lasting hydration by restoring your child’s natural skin oils, easing their discomfort and protecting your child from future flare-ups so they can have better fun.

Atopiclair can be obtained in leading pharmacies in Malaysia and right now, with each purchases of Atopiclair lotions from CARiNG Pharmacy outlets, you will be contributing to the fund raising campaign for the Eczema Kidz Club HKL.
