Treating Skin Irritation


Relieve Annoying Itch

Odds are you or someone you know itches. Many people are plagued by sudden breakouts, mysterious rashes, and hives. Often such incidents are diagnosed as dermatitis, a broad term that includes various forms of eczema or urticaria, aka hives. To date there is no cure for dermatitis. Suffers often go to great lengths just to get temporary relief.

According to experts, atopic dermatitis accounts for approximately 10-20 % of all annual referrals to dermatologists. Characterized by chronic itching, scaling, weeping, and inflammation, it can leave its victims terribly scarred. The urge to scratch despite the risk of scarring, is extremely strong and difficult to resist especially for children. Unfortunately, constant scratching can also lead to secondary infections, some of which are difficult to treat.

Columbia Antiseptic Powder stops the burning, weeping, and itching often associated with dermatitis. By eliminating the need to scratch the affected area, it gives the condition a chance to heal without infection.

Columbia Antiseptic Powder does not contain steroids or cortisone.
