Eczema and burns

Eczema and burns

At Terme di Comano, eczematous dermatitis and eczema caused by different factors (contact irritant dermatitis, contact allergic dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema) are treated with thermal spring water baths and drinking water therapy.

Contact irritant dermatitis
Inflammation of the skin, very common in adults, caused by repeated contact with physical agents (cold, radiations) or chemical substances (acids, ammonia, hypochlorite, ether) that damage the lipids of the skin, in particular the hydrolipidic layer and the cutaneous barrier of the skin. The inflammation affects the area with contact to the irritant and its severity varies according to the trigger factor.
This pathology causes symptoms such as itching and redness, accompanied by papulae and swelling in its acute phases, and by scaling and dry skin in its chronic phases.

Contact allergic dermatitis
It is an allergic response of the skin to the molecules that enter in contact with the skin of predisposed individuals or people exposed to a specific substance because of their work. It is a very common pathology in professional contexts, in particular in the hairdressing and building sectors.
The inflammatory lesions are characterized by itching, redness, blisters, swelling, and eventually crusts and scales. The lesions occur both in the area with contact to the irritant and in other regions of the body.

Dyshidrotic eczema
It is a recurrent inflammatory skin condition of the internal part of the fingers, the palms of the hands, and the bottoms of the feet. It causes several blisters filled with serum, and intense itching. Eventually, the pathology evolves and the lesions become drier, more scaly, and redder. In the acute phase of the rash, this condition can cause severe disability since it affects the hands.

Post-surgical scars and burns
The thermal spring water of Comano is particularly indicated for the dermatological treatment to heal and rehabilitate post-traumatic or post-surgical scars. Bathing in thermal spring water increases the hydration level of the skin and promotes an eutrophic action that improves the elasticity of the skin, as recently shown by several scientific studies.
Harnessing the plastic power of the thermal spring water of Comano, the hydromassage bathtubs of the thermal center use jets at variable pressure to deliver a specific and targeted treatment aimed at rehabilitation. The advised thermal water therapy cycle requires 12-14 days.

The thermal spring water of Comano treats the inflammatory condition and reduces the itching sensation, the number of relapses, and the clinical gravity of the condition. The thermal water therapy cycle with the best results requires 15-20 bathing sessions in thermal spring water.
