rash natural remedies
Herbal Baths are
a great way to treat widespread rashes, and heat rashes in those hard to reach
places that flare up in summer time. A soothing bath of
chamomile and oatmeal is
a luxurious way to start the healing process. A simple home remedy that most
everyone has on hand is baking soda and vinegar. Just add about 2 cups of vinegar
and a tablespoon of baking soda to a tepid bath to and relax away the hurt. This
simple bath also works well on sunburns. Baths
with tea bags of full of green or
black tea will help dry the rashes and stop itching, all for pennies an a
bath. For an especially bad rash you may want to use comfrey
leaf in your bath or as a skin wash.
Keep witch hazel and aloe on hand for all types of skin first aid. If
you don't have witch hazel on hand
in the medicine cabinet, you should, it is an almost universal remedy for any
kind of itching, inflamed skin, no matter
what kind of rash or bug bite you have it starts to work immediately upon contact.
Use in a cool compress or just pour over the affected area. Add fresh
lemon balm leaves to witch hazel for a skin treatment that smells as good
as it works. Use anytime you would use plain witch hazel to sooth and tone skin
and stop itching. If you don't have witch hazel, rubbing alcohol is an acceptable
substitute.Aloe vera gel is another
herbal medicine staple to heal rashes and hydrates the skin. Aloe is an almost
for any kind of itching, inflamed skin, no matter
what kind of rash you have.
There are many essential oils that are antibacterial and healing to the skin
that you can use, but if you keep only one on hand, choose lavender.
Lavender is anti-inflammatory and
antiseptic and healing to the skin. A tea made from the fresh or dried lavender
flowers can be applied as a skin wash to relieve itching due to flea bites and
rashes, or the essential oil can be used. Chamomile is
also excellent for skin rashes, but costs much more than lavender in the concentrated
essential oil form. However for those who have especially sensitive skin should
consider investing in it. Just a few drops can work wonders on rashy and irritated
skin, yet it is so gentle that it is safe for baby's tender skin.
