Scratching when suffering from an eczema flare-up, or any other form of skin irritation, causes damage.
This damage is then vulnerable to infection from bacteria - which in turn causes more irritation: it’s a
Normal skin has a natural protective barrier; when suffering from an eczema flare-up or other skin irritation the balance of this barrier is disturbed. Dexem provides a physical barrier to the bacteria that can potentially lead to infections and so reduces the need to scratch – giving the skin a chance to recover.
The unique 2QR complex in Dexem prevents bacteria from adhering, colonising and thereby infecting vulnerable skin by interfering with the micro-organism’s ability to stick to tissue.
Dexem contains no cytotoxicity and has no adverse effects or negative influence on skin regeneration.
Dexem Repair treats bacterial disturbances, prevents infection and enhances natural healing.
Dexem Repair is hormone-free, steroid-free and fragrance-free and has been dermatologically-tested.
It can be used to treat infants, children and adults.
Dexem Repair can be used on its own or in combination with other treatments such as corticosteroids.
Dexem should be applied AFTER the other treatment, because it forms a protective barrier on top
of the other agent.
Development of antibiotic resistant strains of S. aureus such as methicillin resistant (MRSA) and fusidic acid resistant (FRSA) presents a problem in skincare. It is caused by inappropriate use or over-usage of antibacterial preparations. Because Dexem contains no antibiotics, it can never promote the emergence of resistant bacteria such as MRSA or FRSA.
