If you’re one of the 31 million Americans living with eczema, you are familiar with the daily struggle against red, inflamed skin, ceaseless itching, and the emotional toll of managing a condition that can often feel unmanageable.
You may have even had days when a simple handshake or hug seemed unbearable or nights when the relentless itch kept you awake, longing for relief.
Despite these challenges, science and medicine are evolving, and innovative treatments like GladskinMD with endolysin could address the cause of your flare-ups instead of just relieving the symptoms.
What Is Eczema?
When you have chronic eczema, your skin’s defense system is always in overdrive mode. Your immune system reacts to things too strongly, leaving you with red, itchy patches that can crack and ooze.
We still don’t quite understand the exact cause of eczema, but decades of research show that it’s generally a mix of genetics and environmental triggers. For some people, eating certain foods or wearing a triggering material can make their eczema worse, while for others, a rough day at work or humid weather can cause patches to appear.
While it’s not contagious, it can still affect your self-esteem and make you self-conscious about things like wearing shorts and t-shirts or sharing physical contact with someone during a flare-up.
There are several types of chronic eczema, including:
Commonly developing in early childhood, atopic dermatitis is one of the most common chronic forms of eczema. Symptoms include persistently dry skin, itchiness, and recurring patches of inflammation, often concentrated in areas like the inner elbows or behind the knees.
Small, itchy blisters on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet characterize dyshidrotic eczema. Symptoms often intensify with seasonal changes or emotional stress, requiring ongoing management to keep flare-ups in check.
Also known as discoid eczema, this form distinguishes itself through round, coin-shaped lesions that can emerge on various body parts. Nummular eczema is incredibly challenging to manage and often requires more intensive, long-term treatments.
Treating Chronic Eczema With GladskinMD Endolysin Technology
Dealing with eczema can be a daily struggle, but there are several ways to manage it with over-the-counter creams and prescription treatments.
However, many of these options focus on short-term symptoms rather than the cause, and they can come with side effects you’d rather avoid.
We’re excited to partner with GladskinMD and their endolysin-based formulas that offer a more holistic approach to eczema relief.
The GladskinMD Difference
Endolysins are naturally occurring enzymes that can break down harmful bacteria on your skin without messing with the good bacteria that make your skin biome function as it’s meant to. This approach radically differs from traditional treatments, which often kill all bacteria, good and bad, disrupting the skin’s natural balance.
GladskinMD products use endolysin technology to selectively target and break down the harmful bacteria that contribute to eczema flare-ups, so you get relief without the downsides like dryness and irritation.
Eczemact™ Flare Care Concentrate is a lightweight, steroid-free gel formula with only 8 ingredients to minimize any reactions. It contains GladskinMD’s patented protein Micreobalance®, which restores balance to the skin microbiome. Use gel sparingly while applying to active patches. Allow to dry for a full five minutes before applying Gladskin Barrier Restore MD on top for an intensive layer of moisturization.
Eczemact™ Barrier Restore MD is an occlusive cream is formulated with just seven ingredients. It is developed to work in conjunction with Flare Care Concentrate to maintain skin barrier health and mimic your own skin. Barrier Restore MD is free of water, petrolatum, lanolin, and mineral oil and should be applied five minutes after GladskinMD’s Flare Care Concentrate.
They offer steroid-free head-to-toe skincare with the National Eczema Association seal of approval for all ages.
