Important Safety Information

Atopic Dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is an inherited disorder that usually develops in the first five years of life and causes extremely itchy rashes. This condition is very common worldwide, and in the United States, 1 in 10 Americans has atopic dermatitis. It has a wide range of symptoms, from excessively dry, itchy skin to painful, itchy rashes.
Irritant Contact Dermatitis
Irritant contact dermatitis is a type of contact dermatitis that occurs when skin cells are damaged by exposure to irritants such as detergents, soaps, bleach, hair dye or makeup. This type of contact dermatitis does not involve an allergic reaction by the immune system and accounts for 80% of all contact dermatitis cases. Symptoms include burning or blistering of the skin, as well as itching.

Radiation Dermatitis
Radiation dermatitis is a common consequence of radiation therapy. Up to 85% of radiation therapy patients develop moderate-to-severe skin reactions. Often termed as skin “burns,” radiation skin reactions are not burns. Rather, they are caused when an imbalance between the normal production of skin cells and the basal cell layer of the skin occurs, damaging the cells at the skin surface.

While a patient undergoes radiotherapy, changes to the skin become noticeable. Early stages of the reaction appear as redness, as well as a mild tightness and itching of the skin. Irritation progresses to soreness, patchy redness and irritation, and pus-like drainage.
