As atopic eczema can cause your skin to become cracked and broken, there’s a risk of the skin becoming infected with bacteria. The risk is higher if you scratch your eczema or do not use your treatments correctly.
Signs of a bacterial infection can include:
As well as affecting you physically, atopic eczema may also affect you psychologically.
Preschool children with atopic eczema may be more likely to have behavioural problems such as hyperactivity than children who do not have the condition. They’re also more likely to be more dependent on their parents.
Schoolchildren may experience teasing or bullying if they have atopic eczema. Any kind of bullying can be traumatic and difficult for a child to deal with.
Your child may become quiet and withdrawn. Explain the situation to your child’s teacher and encourage your child to tell you how they’re feeling.
Children as young as three-years-old begin to notice differences about others (Chernyshov, 2016) and react to these differences. Sometimes, they are just curious and no harm is intended. Sometimes bullying follows. Bullying can occur in the form of verbal, physical, social or psychological taunts that are harmful, repetitive and involve an imbalance of power. It can occur directly or through electronic means in the form of cyberbullying. Teasing is generally described as more “playful” or “joking” but not necessarily any less hurtful than bullying (Magin et al, 2008).
Teasing/bullying often occurs when someone is viewed as appearing or behaving differently than their peers. Unfortunately, eczema is typically very visible and those with eczema may be identified as being “different” before one even gets to know them.
Many studies have looked at how teasing and bullying based on appearance affects people physically and mentally. Some show that bullying/teasing negatively impacts one’s level of self-consciousness, self-image, and self-esteem (Magin et al, 2008). Others identified reduced quality of life and more frequent depression (Halvorson et al, 2014). Still others showed increased anxiety levels and social phobias (Stawser, Storch, Roberti, 2005), feelings of loneliness, and decreased contact with friends (Forero et al, 1999). One study (Fattori et al, 2015) assessed bullying in the workplace and found a substantial impact on quality of life and productivity independent of the individual’s underlying medical condition.

Sleep-related problems are common among people with eczema.
A lack of sleep may affect mood and behaviour. It may also make it more difficult to concentrate at school or work.
If your child has problems sleeping because of their eczema, they may fall behind with their schoolwork. It might help to let their teacher know about their condition so it can be taken into consideration.
During a severe eczema flare-up, your child may need time off from school. This may also affect their ability to keep up with their studies.
Atopic eczema can affect the self-confidence of both adults and children. Children may find it particularly difficult to deal with their condition, which may lead to them having a poor self-image.
If your child is severely lacking in confidence, it may affect their ability to develop social skills. Support and encouragement will help boost your child’s self-confidence and give them a more positive attitude about their appearance. Reference

Generally speaking, the BodyWash and SportWash can be used from head to toe and are gentle on the skin. For those with dry or sensitive skin, our Facial Cleanser and CLn® Gentle Shampoo have added moisturizers and glycerin. For those with oily skin, Acne Cleanser, Hand & Foot Wash and regular Shampoo have added salicylic acid to help eliminate excess oil and exfoliate dead skin cells.
Sodium hypochlorite is one of the many components of household bleach. Household bleach even when diluted, as in a bleach bath, has many other chemicals which can be harmful and drying to the skin. At CLn® Skin Care, we took the best part of bleach, sodium hypochlorite at low levels to formulate and preserve our patented cleansers. Undiluted household bleach can be harmful to the skin or internal organs.
Both the CLn® Shampoo and CLn® Gentle Shampoo contain glycerin to help maintain the hairs’ natural moisture balance and can be used for scalp dermatitis or dandruff. The regular Shampoo has the added salicylic acid to help eliminate excess oil and exfoliate dead skin cells. This is most appropriate for people with oily hair and scalp or who may suffer from scalp folliculitis. CLn® Gentle Shampoo does not contain the salicylic acid and therefore is better suited for those with naturally dry hair/scalp, or for those with scalp eczema.
The CLn® Acne Cleanser is the only product on the market that combines 0.5% salicylic acid acne treatment and a known gentle wash, preserved with sodium hypochlorite. This formulation is mild, but effective at treating acne blemishes and preventing future breakouts.
The entire CLn® Skin Care product line are over-the-counter cleansers and shampoos. They are not prescription and, therefore, typically not covered by insurance programs. However, the patient cost for the products is about the cost of an insurance co-pay ($25-40) for about 6 weeks of use.
Our shampoos have not been tested on color treated hair.
Our products have not been tested for use with spray tans. We recommend you spot test by washing a small area and waiting 24 hours.
CLn® Skin Care products are not absorbed transcutaneous and do not enter the blood stream. Check with your doctor if pregnant or breastfeeding.
The CLn® BodyWash or CLn® SportWash may look “white or cloudy” when shipped in cold weather. This does not change the formulation or product effectiveness. Once the product is in a warmer environment of the shower or on the skin it returns to a clear gel appearance.
Eczema is a skin condition caused by inflammation of the skin. Typically, eczema causes skin to become itchy, red, and dry — even cracked and leathery. Eczema can appear on any part of the body. Eczema is a chronic problem for many people. It is most common in infants, many of whom outgrow it before adulthood. Atopic dermatitis is the most common of the many types of eczema.
Eczema runs in families. Certain genes can make some people have extra-sensitive skin. An overactive immune system is thought to be a factor as well. Also, it’s thought that defects in the skin’s protective barrier contribute to eczema, by allowing moisture out through the skin and letting germs in. Factors that may trigger eczema include: stress, contact with irritating substances, heat and sweat, cold, dry climates and dry skin.
Folliculitis is an infection and inflammation in the hair follicles – the tiny openings in the skin that enclose hair. You can have folliculitis on any part of your body that has hair. Even the nearly invisible hair on your face or back. It is most common on the face and scalp and areas rubbed by clothing, such as the thighs and groin. Folliculitis is also referred to as ingrown hairs and razor burn or bumps.
Shaving or wearing clothes that rub the skin can irritate hair follicles, which can lead to folliculitis. Follicles also can become blocked or irritated by sweat, oils, or makeup. When bacteria, yeast, or fungus is present with injured follicles, they are more likely to become infected, resulting in folliculitis.
