Eczema Treatments: What Every Eczema Sufferer Should Know About Aqueous Creams
Most eczema sufferers who have visited their doctor and asked for advice are likely to have been given a prescription of aqueous cream. Aqueous creams are routinely prescribed in as many as 90% of cases as a treatment for eczema however new research once again has established that aqueous creams can make the condition worse since in 85% of cases it is wrongly prescribed.
“If people with eczema leave aqueous cream on their skin, it could make their condition worse,” explains Dr. Schiele, who is a leading expert on bio medical research and founder of Salcura Natural Skin Therapy (www.salcuraskincare.com).
”People suffering with eczema have a lack of natural oils and moisturisers and therefore skin becomes dry. Aqueous creams do not contain a moisturiser and are designed to seal the skin, a bit like putting a plastic bag over your skin, so that less moisture can escape.”
A study already completed some years ago by the Birmingham Childrens Hospital and Shefield Hallam Clinic revealed that 56% of children had an irritant reaction, increased inflamation and induced itchiness to aqueous creams and that many children refer to aqueous creams as “the stinging cream” because of the irritation it causes.
With adults the situation is no different says Dr. Schiele. “GP’s prescribe the cream, the patient uses it for a short while and then discontinues use because it isn’t having the desired effect. Patient compliancy therefore is very low.”
GP’s can not be to blame as they receive only a short time of training in skin at medical school even though 20% of a GP’s time is taken up through skin complaints.
“People should not be afraid to question their doctor or ask for alternatives.” says Dr. Schiele. “Most of my clients come to me after years of dissatisfaction with prescription products. I always advise them to try using natural products that aid the skin by supplying vital nutrients for skin repair and skin healing.”
Dr. Schiele has formulated a range of natural skin therapy products that provide an alternative to aqueous creams and have given thousands of people including children welcomed relief. His range can be viewed at www.salcuraskincare.com
Dr. Schiele is also the author of various published articles including “A New Look At Nutrient Based Skin Treatments” published in The Pharmacist 2007 and “New Successful Treatments For Skin Disorders with Class 1 Medical Devices” published in the National Association of Primary Care Review Book in Spring 2008.
