Top 10 Ways to Cure Itchy Rash – updated article
In a feature we ran last year we talked about natural methods that can be used to cure itchy rash. It might not be the most pleasant of topics, but it is important to have a list of effective remedies that you can find around the house or easily purchase on the local shop.
Aloe Vera is a multi-purpose therapeutic plant. Keep one of these in your house so that you have an unlimited supply!
St. John’s Wort is used to treat depression, but it can also be used to revitalize the skin, and cure an itchy rash!
Chamomile – the essential oil, not the tea. This oil is packed full of anti-inflammatory properties, and is great for curing rashes. Chamomile tea is well-known for its calming properties, and it also calms the skin when we use it as an essential oil!
Oatmeal Bath is a good itchy rash treatment method. Sprinkle oatmeal into your bath and it will act as a calming agent that is great for helping to cure your itchy rash.
Olive Oil is a great all purpose natural oil that can be applied to any rash, and its powerful moisturizing properties should help relieve the itch.
Baking Powder is a proven itchy skin cure. Sprinkle some baking powder into your bath tub, or conversely make a paste out of it and apply it to the infected area.
Ice pack. Ice is great for many skin issues, and is a simple and effective itchy rash treatment. By applying an ice pack to the rash, you numb the area and gain relief
Calamine Lotion has powerful moisturizing and soothing properties, and is an effective itchy skin cure, and very easy to apply.
Pine Tar Soap. Lather up some pine tar soap in the shower and rub into onto the itchy area. Pine tar has good moisturizing properties.
It is important to avoid deodorant soap and other such chemical substances when you have an itchy rash. These could just exacerbate the problem. An itchy rash should not be exposed to summer sun, and should not be allowed to dry out. The more moisturized it is, the faster it will heal.
In terms of diet, if you have re-occurring itchy rashes it may be worth looking at what you take in on a daily basis. There are certain foods, vitamins and minerals that are considered good for skin that is susceptible to rashes. These are Omega 3’s, Flaxseed oil, avocados, walnuts, and zinc as well as Vitamins A, C and E supplements. For the original story, and further information on ways to cure an itchy rash, click here
