Nico suffers from a strong expression of skin eczema all over the body,Atopic Dermatitis, so the diagnosis. We want to tell his story here, because Nico has approached us and wants to encourage others.
We received Nico's first message via Instagram, it was photos showing his hands. Hands of an adult, 40-year-old man, but with scaly, torn-up areas that stretch sore over the back of his hand. Diagnosis: atopic Dermatitis, die most common, chronic skin disease. It meets people in all phases of life and requires individually tailored therapy concepts. The skin of the sufferers is highly sensitive and irritated. Especially under Stress, but also due to certain clothing such as wool, sweat and environmental influences – such as exhaust gases or cigarette smoke –the skin appearance worsens. The itching is the worst Symptom, because it often does not let the patients sleep and robs them Quality of life – in bad cases it goes so far that only cortisone and antidepressants help. Successful therapies are rare and very challenging.
For 20 years my hands didn't look like this anymore
But the second message we received from Nico made us breathe a sigh of relief. It was a picture again, but there was nothing left to see of the wounds. Underneath it was: "my hands to ALPINOLS".
"For 20 years, my hands didn't look so good," he writes. We wanted to track him down and asked him for his consent to answer and publish a few questions:

ALPINOLS:Can you tell us how these problems affect your daily life?
