Natural Remedies for Safe, Effective Treatment of Skin Rashes

by Luella May

(The Best Years in Life) 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. This article addresses how to naturally and effectively 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 of systemic allergies 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 or blister, or it can present itself with no discomfort whatsoever. Some rashes go away by themselves as soon as the allergen is removed. Others need 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 basil leaves, combining them 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.
*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 reduce the chances of subsequent allergic reactions.
*Raw apple cider vinegar and raw honey are very effective in eliminating allergies. Take one tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar mixed with one tablespoon of honey three times a day or mix the apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water. For best results, 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 and apply to rash.

 

Liver toxicity can be the cause of certain skin rashes. It may be beneficial to do a liver cleanse. Silymarin is the active ingredient in milk thistle, the primary herb for liver cleansing and is the basis our Liver Cleanse formulation.

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 applying cosmetics can also help prevent many allergies.

Natural remedies are safer than most conventional treatments such as lotions, corticosteroids and antihistamines. In many instances natural remedies are also more effective.
