It is important to create and maintain a balanced microbial environment for long-term health.
Microbial balance is crucial to maintaining a healthy skin condition for patients with Atopic Dermatitis (AD).
By creating a positive environment that encourages the growth of the good bacteria on skin to a balanced level.
Without these conditions, relief and treatment for Atopic Dermatitis is harder to achieve and sustain.
Sweating, plays 4 key roles in:
Untreated sweat may also provoke an allergic reaction in people with Atopic Dermatitis.
Sweat management is essential.
A successful treatment plans depends largely on the patients’ good self-management in treatment application.
One of the findings from the CLOTHES trial commissioned by the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) for the relief of AD Symptoms:
Improved self-management is key in enhancing treatment outcome and improved life quality for people with impaired sweating function.
Since our skin touches our clothing all year round, our choice of fabric becomes integral to the management of Atopic Dermatitis and associated skin irritation.
Choosing the right clothing can utilize the regulatory functions of sweating while minimizing negative effects.
The concept of Comfiknit optimizes the body’s natural ability to thermoregulate, optimizing comfort.
The fabric has been engineered to create a micro-climate for the wearer.
The flexible fabric structure can also be altered according to wearers’ specific needs during the seasonal change from summer to winter.
