From nappy rash to Eczema, hydro-cortisone is regularly prescribed for childrens' skin conditions. However, if used over long periods, this will permanently change the skin texture, making the skin leathery. It does not cure eczema, but suppresses the disease, driving it inwards.
This distressing problem in babies and children, can often be cured by turning to the more gentle remedies of nature. Aromacure uses a blend of Lavender, Chamomile and Bergamot essential oils in a gentle base of Vitamin 'E' cream, calendula cream and Aloe Vera to moisturize and soothe sore, irritated skin and encourage skin regeneration. It is made in two strengths for Babies and Children, and makes a wonderfully effective cream for both nappy rash and Eczema. At Aromacure, we use no preservatives or chemical additives, and each pot of cream is made individually to order.
It's also worth noting that in many cases, there is a link to dairy intolerance which can aggravate the condition during these early years.
