BuchuLife says that research shows that nearly one in five children is affected by eczema at some point in their childhood, while 2% – 9% of adults suffer from it.
Approximately 15% – 25% of patients treated for dermatological disorders suffer from eczema however, these figures are suspected to be higher and increasing when factoring the number of cases which remain unreported.
What is eczema?
Eczema is a term for a group of medical conditions which causes the skin to become inflamed, irritated, dry and itchy. It is usually triggered by allergies related to food or environmental irritants and is often characterised by a tendency to develop other allergic conditions such as asthma or hay fever. The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it’s thought to be linked to an overactive response by the body’s immune system to an irritant.
What are the treatment options for eczema?
While no cure for eczema currently exists, there are various treatments available. A common treatment for eczema has been topical steroid cortisone creams, however due to fears of this treatment thinning the skin and other possible harmful side-effects, sufferers are often in search of alternative treatments.
What are the natural alternatives to cortisone?
A natural alternative to cortisone, which has produced amazing results, is the medicinal herb, Buchu, which has been deemed as “Nature’s Wonder Pain Reliever and Anti-Inflammatory” by Professor Patrick Bouic (Journal of Natural Medicine, 2004). Extensive scientific research has proven the formulated organic Buchu oil contained in BuchuLife First Aid Gel to have potent anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties. Anecdotal evidence has shown this product to be effective in the maintenance of eczema in children and adults.
The Buchu solution: Buchu has a dual role here, namely: prevention of the inflammation as well as an anti-infective action. This is an inflammatory process, therefore Buchu will curb any further inflammation topically as well as keep the skin lesions clean and non-infected. Furthermore, the natural anti-histamine action present in the Buchu extract used in the gel, guarantees instant relief to the ongoing itchiness associated with eczema. By relieving the itchiness, targeting the inflammation and acting as an effective antibacterial agent, BuchuLife First Aid Gel is effective in the successful management of this chronic condition which plagues so many babies and children.
