The products involved in fighting the bacteria are called ANTIMICROBIALS, being that some of them are important in the treatment of eczema.

The antimicrobial products are divided into bactericide, bacteriostatic and bacteriolitics.

You know what is the difference between bactericidal and Bacteriostatic?

Although the names are very similar, the settings are directly related with its mechanism of action.

Generally, a product to be classified as a bactericide when causes the death of bacteria up to approximately 99.99%, through mechanisms such as the irreversible inhibition of the replication of DNA.

The products classified as bacteriostatic are those that inhibit the growth of bacteria in a given environment, being necessary external action for the elimination of the same (task of the immune system).

In the case of bacteriolitics, in addition to kill bacteria active through the prevention of the formation of cell wall, also eliminate the cells already dead (rupture of the bacterial cell). The penicillin, for example, is classified as an antimicrobial agent bacteriolitic.

Classify an agent as bactericidal or bacteriostatic is not a very easy task.

As a maximum, the "poison is in the dose"! In high concentrations, many times the bacteriostatic agents typically classified as can be considered as BACTERICIDES, since they can be powerful enough to kill most bacteria.

In the same way, bactericidal products can be used in small concentrations, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, instead of eliminating them. This behavior is typical of a bacteriostatic action.

The bactericidal and bacteriostatic products or bacteriolitics can also be termed as ANTISEPTICS, antibiotics or disinfectants.

The ANTISEPTICS are products that can be used in the human body or animals (skin, mucosa, etc.), acting on living tissues to prevent infections.

The antibiotics, in turn, are antimicrobial agents used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections of selective way.

Both the antiseptics or antibiotics can assume functions bactericidal or bacteriostatic.

The disinfectants are chemical agents antimicrobials applied on objects and surfaces with the purpose to destroy microorganisms that live in these objects.

The machine BACTERIOSTATIC Skintoskin And ECZEMA

Among the environmental factors that can exert a predominant action on the evolution and intensity of the clinical picture of a person with eczema, Stand if Agents infeciosos and particularly the Staphylococcusaureus (SA).

The skin of atopic skin colonization by SA it is observed in 80 to 100% of atopic patients, while in nonatopic this colonization is between 5 and 30%.

The incorporation of zinc in synthetic clothing skintoskin gives tissues bacteriostatic properties truly effective to the extent that drastically reduces the colonization of the skin by potentially hostile bacteria, in particular the SA, a producer of toxins that exist in much greater quantity in the skin of atopic individuals and has been responsible for the maintenance and the crises of aggravation of afeção.

In atopic subjects, the skin colonization by this bacteria can be up to 100 times higher in areas where the skin has normal aspect and 1000 times higher in inflamed areas.
