Eczema Relief

Customized Compounded Solutions for Pediatric Atopic Dermatitis

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a prevalent skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. It often affects children, causing discomfort and impacting their quality of life. At Reliant Compounded Solutions, we understand the challenges faced by pediatric patients with eczema and the importance of personalized treatments. Our compounding services offer a unique opportunity to create customized formulations that address the specific needs of each individual, providing enhanced symptom relief and improved skin barrier function.

Understanding Eczema

A Common Pediatric Skin Condition

Eczema is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the skin’s protective barrier, resulting in dryness, redness, itching, and the formation of lesions. It can be triggered by various factors such as allergens, irritants, stress, or temperature changes. While there is no cure for eczema, management focuses on relieving symptoms, preventing flare-ups, and maintaining skin hydration and integrity.

Benefits of Pracasil

Advanced Compounded Solution

One highly effective and versatile ingredient utilized in our compounded formulations for eczema is Pracasil. Pracasil is a proprietary silicone base that offers several benefits for pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis. It creates a protective barrier on the skin, sealing in moisture and reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which helps alleviate dryness and improve hydration. The occlusive properties of Pracasil also prevent irritants from coming into contact with the skin, reducing itching and inflammation. Furthermore, Pracasil promotes enhanced absorption of other active ingredients, allowing for more targeted and effective therapy.

Customized Ingredients for Eczema Treatment

Mechanisms of Action

Our compounded formulations for eczema incorporate a variety of ingredients with specific mechanisms of action to address the underlying inflammation, itching, and dryness. Here are some key ingredients commonly utilized:

  • Corticosteroids: Compounded creams or ointments containing low-potency corticosteroids, such as hydrocortisone or desonide, can help reduce inflammation and itching by suppressing the immune response in the skin1. They are often used for short-term relief during acute flare-ups.

  • Emollients and Moisturizers: Compounded formulations often include emollients and moisturizers, such as ceramides, glycerin, or hyaluronic acid, to restore and maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier2. These ingredients help combat dryness, enhance skin hydration, and reduce itching.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Agents: Ingredients like topical calcineurin inhibitors (e.g., tacrolimus or pimecrolimus) can be compounded to reduce inflammation by inhibiting immune cell activation and cytokine production3.

  • Antihistamines: Compounded creams or ointments containing antihistamines like diphenhydramine or doxepin can help alleviate itching by blocking histamine receptors in the skin4.
Please note that the specific ingredients and their concentrations will vary based on the severity and individual needs of each pediatric patient. Our experienced compounding pharmacists work closely with healthcare providers to tailor formulations that provide optimal results.
