A vast majority of people with allergic skin have very dry skin, especially in certain areas of the body. And they are very sensitive to a variety of internal or external stimuli. So it is necessary to take of your skin seriously. Here are some tips to help you. However, the thoroughness of these measures will depend on the severity and frequency of the problem, and if it is or not in the active phase.
Prevent Skin Damage

1. Avoid excessive moisture: Use short baths, as infrequently as to permit their activities (in children, every 2 to 5 days) using water as cold as possible. Avoid long baths in pools, bathtubs or Tube.s Pat the skin carving. Towels should have no waste of fabric softeners.

2. Avoid excessive sweating: Do not overdress in cold weather or on hot days. If you exercise, wear lighter clothes as possible. It is preferable to bathe in cold water if you sweat too much.

3. Avoid skin irritants: Use less alkaline soaps as possible (“neutral”), preferably unscented. In case of active lesions, just rinse with water. There are creams or soap substitutes “dermo-cleansing” (Cetaphyl, Avecyde, Aquanyl) for such conditions.

Do not use biological detergents to wash clothes, but use any soap directly or melted for washing, with water as hot as possible, and rinse thoroughly (at least 2 rinse cycles on your washing machine). Try not to use fabric softeners. If used,  3 cycles rinsing.

Hair shampoos should be used separately from the normal bathroom if there are active lesions. This will prevent shampoo from getting through the broken skin. Try using less aggressive soaps on the skin, such as baby soaps (Baby Magic, Johnson, etc..) Try to use softer and lighter clothes. Use cotton underwear and cover the elastic band with cotton fabric. Avoid rough clothes like nylon, lycra or wool acrylán directly touching the skin, especially on an already-damaged skin.

Because it is a condition characterized by producing intense pruritus (“itch” or “Rasquera”), it is always important to keep the nails short and clean, especially of young children.


There are some foods that contain natural substances that can cause itching or allergies. They must be avoided immediately.

The foods that most reactions are: citrus (orange and lemon), the chilli, pepper, pineapple, tomato, strawberry, chocolate, seafood, nuts and peanuts.  Processed foods that contain chemical preservatives of various types (benzoates, sulphites, citrates, nitrites, etc.), some synthetic dyes and some artificial flavors induce lesions or pruritus. Try to avoid them as far as possible.

If you have already noticed that some natural or industrial food had produced itching or injury, you should know that you are “allergic” to them, and always avoid them.
