Acute cream reduces redness and itching - World Psoriasis Day on 29 October
Hennigsdorf b. Berlin, 20 October 2023 - In the treatment of psoriasis (psoriasis), the skin microbiome plays a crucial role. According to current scientific publications, bath therapies, for example, which are accompanied by a re-balancing of the microbiome, show significant success in the management of psoriasis. This is pointed out by Prof. Dr. Christine Lang, Professor of Microbiology at the Technical University of Berlin and Director of Research and Development at BELANO medial AG, on the occasion of World Psoriasis Day, which takes place on October 29.
In a joint study with the German Neurodermatitis Association, for example, it was shown that products against scaly skin that actively stimulate the skin’s microbiome achieved a high degree of effectiveness in psoriasis sufferers. As part of the study, the acute cream developed by BELANO medical from the “ibiotics med” range of medical skin care products was tested by psoriasis sufferers over a period of four weeks. Around 90 percent of them subsequently confirmed a good or even very good improvement in the appearance of the skin.
In almost all cases, symptoms such as dryand scaly skin (in 90 percent), redness (in 84 percent) or itching (in 82 percent of the test subjects) also subsided significantly. “In our research and through the resulting products we pursue the goal to provide patients effective help. This is based on natural processes and does not require cortisone or other synthetic active ingredients,” emphasizes Prof. Christine Lang. “All the more so because many participants in the study stated that they had already used numerous skin creams or medically prescribed products, but these had no effect.”
In cooperation with patient groups and interest groups for atopic dermatitis or psoriasis sufferers, the aim is to counter such frustrating experiences, which further increase the pressure of suffering. Christine Lang: There are possibilities and means to be able to act in case of psoriasis effectively and without side effects. On the occasion of the action day we want to call attention to these possibilities.”
The world Psoriasis day is held since 2004 on 29 October. National and international associations of psoriasis patients and professional associations of dermatologists work together to inform people with psoriasis, relatives, doctors and interested parties about the disease, symptoms and possible causes, as well as possibilities for treatment and support.
