Topical botanicals prove effective for pediatric atopic dermatitis

“Topical botanicals could be used as adjunctive therapy to help reach and maintain disease clearance,” Leon H. Kircik, M.D.

“Botanicals are not new and have been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. However, what’s new is that the botanicals are now being evaluated in a more scientific fashion,” says Leon H. Kircik, M.D., Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, and co-author of the study.

Compared to vehicle, results showed the test product achieved superior outcomes in all evaluated clinical parameters. The results revealed that 40% of subjects achieved 0 (clear) on the IGA scale and 60% achieved 0 or 1 (clear or almost clear) on the IGA scale compared to 8% or 38% of vehicle subjects, respectively. The BSA comparative outcomes, as well as the SCORAD and EASI indexes, also showed the advantage of the test product over the vehicle.

Kamedis Eczema Therapy Cream is a non-steroidal homeopathic emulsion based on botanicals, specially formulated to manage the symptoms of a number of dermatoses such as AD and many of its varying forms, radiation dermatitis, as well as burns.

CBD
