Skin Allergies and Skin Rash
Skin rash is a common term that describes an outbreak of red bumps on the body that changes the texture of the skin. A skin rash can be the result of many different conditions, ranging from allergies to infections. In this article, we will address how to naturally treat common skin rashes, especially those that are caused by allergies.
Allergic rashes fall into two categories: dermal and systemic. A dermal allergy is caused by the skin coming into direct contact with an allergen. A systemic allergy is the consequence of something ingested. Systemic allergies can be more serious and difficult to diagnose. When addressing food allergies, it is important to note that the most common offenders are eggs, milk, seafood, soy, wheat, tree nuts, and peanuts.
A skin rash can be localized or widespread. It can itch, tingle, burn, cause pain, swell, blister, or it can be present with no discomfort whatsoever. Some rashes go away by themselves as soon as the allergen is removed. Others necessitate treatment. Specific causes of skin rashes include, change in temperature, food allergens, sensitivity to certain drugs, pollens, dust, smoke, soap products, perfumes, lotions, and latex rubber.
Remedies that can be effective in treating skin rashes include:
*Washing the affected area with chamomile tea.
*Applying olive oil to the rash.
*A mixture of cod liver oil and vitamin E is very effective in eliminating rashes.
*Grinding holy basil leaves, combined with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 garlic cloves, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, and smearing over the rash.
*Taking an oatmeal bath is one of the best body rash treatments. Pour one cup of uncooked oatmeal into the bathwater and soak in this solution.
*Another extremely effective treatment is applying mashed almond leaves to the affected area.
*Vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties that can help heal rashes and reduces the chances of subsequent allergic reactions.
*Raw apple cider vinegar and raw honey are very effective in eliminating allergies. Take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and honey three times a day or mix the apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water. The honey should be obtained from a local source.
*Another good remedy for skin allergies is to crush one tablespoon of poppy seeds, mix with one teaspoon of water and one teaspoon of lime juice. Apply to rash.
*Rash Powder: Mix 4 teaspoons dry clay, 1 teaspoon, vitamin C powder, 1 teaspoon goldenseal powder, 1 teaspoon comfrey root powder and apply to rash. The comfrey root is included to help heal a rash with wet discharge.
Liver toxicity can also be the cause of certain skin rashes. It may be beneficial to do a liver cleanse. Herbs that help to detoxify the liver are turmeric, milk thistle, and dandelion.
One item that can help avoid allergies due to local pollens is regular consumption of locally grown raw organic honey.
Avoidance of smoking, heavy alcohol consumption and cosmetics can also help prevent many allergies.
