Scabs (or not) on the legs: Case 3: dermatophilosis

Yet another of the most commonly encountered "mud scabs": dermatophilosis on the legs. Here's how to recognize and treat it.

DERMATOPHILOSIS ON THE LEGS

It's a bacterial infection, favored by dampness and water running over certain areas. Initially, the skin appears irritated, sometimes slightly painful. Gradually, the hairs fall out like a brush, leaving the skin bare. There's no itching, apart from the scratching caused by the falling hairs. 

The key is to neutralize the bacteria, then apply a soft, waterproof, moisturizing protection to the depilated area.

STEP 1: CLEANSE THE SKIN
STEP 1: CLEANSE THE SKIN

The first step is to cleanse the area with tea tree shampoo.  The strong power of tea tree will purify the skin and leave an artificial film for 24 hours. Avoid conventional anti-bacterial products, which are too aggressive in this case.

Dry well with a terry towel to remove excess moisture. You won't need to shampoo again afterwards.

During this period, avoid other water-based treatments, such as showers to remove any mud (in this case, brush).

STEP 2: HELPING THE SKIN FIGHT THE BACTERIA

Application of DERFONGEN milk will provide the skin with all the active ingredients it needs to eliminate the bacteria. Gorged with Vitamin E, DERFONGEN will "melt" into the skin and immediately boost its defenses. 

Spread the milk over the affected area and around the perimeter to prevent bacterial proliferation.

A single application will suffice, but if necessary, repeat 1 more application 4 days later.

STEP 3: STIMULATE HAIR REGROWTH
STEP 3: STIMULATE HAIR REGROWTH

If the area is particularly depilated, the hair will need to grow back quickly to avoid new infections. At the same time, the skin needs to regain its elasticity as quickly as possible, to guarantee the longevity of the treatment.

Alternate between CUTENE (to stimulate regrowth and help heal any minor damage) and NATJELY (to protect against moisture and restore elasticity). The application trend is CUTENE followed by NATJELY 2 days later, until the area looks normal again.

Once the problem has been solved, NATJELY every 3-4 days will protect the weakened area, for 2 weeks or more if necessary.
