Thermal Spring Water Eczema Treatment

Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition in both young children and adults that Saint-Gervais thermal water has the power to relieve. The thermal treatment for eczema soothes itching, softens and regenerates the skin.

For some, eczema is combined with asthma and/or allergies. A dual-orientation Dermatology + ENT/Respiratory Tract Treatment is particularly recommended. Book a thermal treatment for your eczema at Les Thermes de Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc.


After several treatments, inflammation and itching will be soothed, while the skin softens and regenerates itself. Often, the period between flare-ups lasts longer and you will notice an improvement in the quality of your skin.


For eczema, the treatment can help reduce medication dependence. The treatment will allow you to chat with qualified professionals as well as spa guests from all backgrounds. A great way of putting an end to the isolation associated with the condition and sharing your experiences and difficulties in everyday life.


The most important part is, without a doubt, the quality of the water at Les Thermes de Saint-Gervais, which for more than 200 years has treated over 200,000 spa guests, providing healing, decongestant and anti-itching effects.

Eczema-care treatments

The treatments are carried out every morning for 18 consecutive days from Monday to Saturday and last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes each morning. Sundays are a rest day.

During the first consultation, your spa doctor will create a treatment plan that includes the care to be performed during your 18 days of treatment.

All treatments are carried out using 100% thermal spring water to offer you the best quality.


Treatments prescribed by the spa doctor and carried out every day:

  • “Thermal water” beverage treatment: you will feel the benefit of the anti-inflammatory properties of thermal water from the inside and thus, revitalise your body.
  • Filiform shower: 1 to 3 mins. The filiform shower is carried out by the spa doctor. It deeply restructures the skin, soothes and softens.
  • General bath: 15 mins. The bath has a soothing, drying and healing function. The heat of the water activates cutaneous circulation. It has a relieving and relaxing effect, especially in people with stiff joints.
  • General spray: 15 mins. Finely sprayed water unblocks the skin.

These four treatments are prescribed for each patient according to the extent of the condition and the patient’s needs, the doctor can also prescribe a face spray and localised baths.

Additional treatments:

  • Cephalic shower: stream of thermal water on the scalp. The effects of the water soothe and heal the skin.
  • Localised bath: 10 to 15 mins. Carried out on the hands and/or legs. This treatment enhances the decongestant, anti-itching and relaxing effects of thermal water.
  • Facial spray: 10 to 15 mins. A mist of thermal water is sprayed on the face.
