It is true that budesonide does not cure these conditions, but it can help to alleviate some of the symptoms such as pain and diarrhoea. Budesonide is a medication that is used to treat inflammation (corticosteroid hormone). It accomplishes this by lowering the body’s natural defence response (immune response).
