Discussion Board Replay Week 5
Dermatological conditions refer to irritations, clogs, and inflame, which occur on the human skin. These conditions are mainly treated using conventional medications like antibiotics, retinoids, and isotretinoin. However, as posted previously, herbal therapy is the most popular alternative medicine approach in response to dermatological conditions. This discussion, thus, aims at responding to the initial post by showing how green tea lotion and tea tree oil are beneficial herbal therapies for skin disorders.
It has been stated in the initial post that green tea cream has a high medicinal value in treating acne, one of the common dermatological conditions. This is because it contains anti-acne and anti-inflammatory effect which prevents the disorder. According to Nasri et al. (2015), the main reason why this herbal therapy is effective is that it brings about the inhibitory growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Green tea lotion also has an antiseptic effect, which is mostly responsible for the anti-acne result. Nasri et al. (2015) also indicate that neem tree, which is referred to as Azadirachta indica scientifically, has the same effect as green tea lotion shows, and thus it can be used as a remedy for acne and other skin disorders.
This post also introduces tea tree oil, which is the most used alternative medicine approach in response to dermatological conditions in contemporary society. The extraction of the oil occurs from Melaleuca alternifolia, an indigenous plant found in Australia (Pazyar, Yaghoobi, Bagherani, & Kazerouni, 2013). This oil contains the highest amount of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, and, thus, it is the most effective therapy in dermatological issues.
In conclusion, the current discussion adds more information to the initial post by discussing how green tea lotion and tea tree oil are used as herbal therapies for skin disorders. It has been established that green tea cream also has an antiseptic effect and inhibitory growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses; thus it is quite useful. Tea tree oil, on the other hand, has been included as it contains the highest amount of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
