Diaper rash is one of the most common skin conditions in infants and young children. If diapers are not changed often enough, ammonia is formed from the urine, which irritates the delicate baby skin on the bottom and makes it sore. The skin is then reddened and inflamed over a large area, the bottom itches or hurts.

In addition, Kamillosan ® ointment supports wound healing in diaper rash.
INFLAMMATION IN THE MOUTH AREA
Inflammations in the mouth are often noticeable through pain when eating and bad breath, the mucous membrane is usually red and swollen, sometimes plaque is also visible. The cause can be incorrectly fitting prostheses, poor oral hygiene or incorrect tooth alignment. Reduced salivation in old age, a weakened general condition, infectious diseases, vitamin deficiency, diabetes, circulatory disorders, hormone fluctuations, smoking and increased alcohol consumption can all contribute to inflammation in the mouth. Usually several factors are involved in the development of an inflammation of the oral mucosa.
Cold viruses or allergies are usually the trigger for a runny nose. The nose itches, sneezing attacks occur, the nasal mucous membrane swells and hinders breathing through the nose. Because the nasal mucous membrane produces more secretions, you have to blow your nose frequently. Frequent blowing your nose and blowing your nose irritates and inflames not only the mucous membrane inside the nose, but also the sensitive skin at the nasal entrance. The nose is then red, sore and painful - a typical cold nose. Kamillosan ® ointment is recommended for extra care in the case of a cold : it relieves the soreness of the nose and protects the mucous membrane from damaging influences.
