What is Kamillosan Liquidum and when is it used?
Camomile was already widely used in ancient times and was valued even then for its pain-relieving, antispasmodic, slightly disinfecting, wound-healing and wound-cleansing properties.
Kamillosan Liquidum contains essential oil and flavones in quantified quantities as chamomile components that help determine its effectiveness. Kamillosan Liquidum is an anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, itching-relieving, slightly disinfectant with soothing and odor-eliminating properties.
Kamillosan Liquidum can therefore be used:
- For mouth rinsing and gargling: For inflammation of the oral cavity, pharynx, gums, bad breath.
- For inhaling and Facial steam bath: For colds, inflammation of the paranasal sinuses, bronchitis. As a supportive measure for blemished skin, pustules, blackheads (acne vulgaris).
- For compresses, washes, partial and full baths: for itching, skin inflammation, for the after-treatment of open abscesses, boils, infected wounds, first-degree burns.
- As a sitz bath: to relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids, itching with eczema (including anal eczema) or inflammation in the area of the anus.
- As a children's bath: for inflammatory skin symptoms.
- For rinsing: for inflammatory diseases of the female genital organs.
- For brushing (undiluted): for inflammation of the oral mucosa, gums, paradontosis, bleeding gums.
What should be considered?
Kamillosan Liquidum is only suitable for external use. Don't ingest. Not for aerosol inhalation to avoid possible irritation.
Before breastfeeding newborns, the mother must remove Kamillosan Liquidum from the area of her nipples.
If local deterioration occurs or healing does not take place within two to three weeks, a doctor must be consulted. If the general condition deteriorates (e.g. fever), a doctor should be consulted immediately.
When should Kamillosan Liquidum not be used or only with caution?
Kamillosan Liquidum should not be used if there is a known hypersensitivity to chamomile.
In the case of hypersensitivity to other daisy family plants (Asteraceae) such as Achillea millefolilum (sheep gift), Arnica montana (arnica), mugwort, Bellis perennis (daisy), calendula officinalis (marigold), chrysanthemum, echinacea (coneflower) can lead to allergic cross-reactions (see under «What side effects can Kamillosan Liquidum have?»)
In particular if you suffer from asthma, you may only use Kamillosan Liquidum for inhalation after consulting your doctor. In addition, Kamillosan Liquidum must not be used for enemas (intestinal rinsing).
Since Kamillosan Liquidum contains 43% alcohol by volume, it is important to ensure the correct dilution, especially for children. It must not be used in the area of the eyes. Inhalations and facial steam baths must not be carried out on small children.
The inhalative application should only take place by means of steam inhalation.
Kamillosan Liquidum should not be used on children under the age of 1 year.

In patients with known sensitization to plants from the composite family (daisy family), e.g. yarrow, arnica, mugwort, daisy, marigold, coneflower, chrysanthemum, marguerite, a hypersensitivity reaction to chamomile can also occur due to a cross-reaction.
