Effect of chamomile

Even with badly healing wounds, fungal disease in the anal and genital area, the chamomile is used. In bacterial skin diseases of the oral cavity and the gums, the extracts of chamomile have a healing effect. Furthermore, the use of chamomile is recommended for respiratory and sinusitis for inhalation.

In children, the effect of the internal application of medicinal plant chamomile in convulsive gastrointestinal complaints and colic could be proven by clinical studies.
