New Chinese herbal drug claims to treat wide range of skin disorders

Cortisone and corticosteroids are frequently used to treat skin problems and allergies. However, these drugs only recommended for temporary relief only and long-term use can result in side effects such as obesity, increased blood pressure and fluid retention resulting in swelling. Long-term use can also result in reduced effectiveness of the drug or even a deterioration of symptoms. A Chinese herbal product called Skin Formula claims relieve skin problems such as dermatitis, eczema, hives, swelling, uneven pigmentation, boil-like symptoms, burning, stinging, redness, blisters, rashes, itching and other skin problems caused by food, skin care products, allergies, medication, chemicals and excessive cortisone use. The product is marketed by HERBSLmax.
