Eczema symptoms are miserable and painful. They often include dry red and itchy skin that often burns and cracks if not kept moisturized. This can be very embarrassing for the individual with this disorder. However, there are plenty of ways to treat eczema. Usually it is better when dealing with skin irritations to keep to the natural treatments versus the commercial ones. When dealing with natural ingredients there is less risk of creating more side effects to deal with. In saying that, there are many different types of natural remedies out there. Some are in the form of cleansers, scrubs, and lotions. Here are some examples of recipes that have been created specifically for treating eczema symptoms.
It is important to keep a strict cleaning schedule to properly maintain your eczema. It is also important to choose the right products to clean your skin with.
One way that is advised for daily cleansing is with the use of pine tar soap, this will softly remove the dead skin without removing too much or irritating the skin which may cause further blistering and inflammation. This is meant to reduce itchy dry skin.
Again it is very important when treating these symptoms that you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. However, this does not exclude exfoliation. This step helps to remove itchy, flaky skin.
Here is a simple recipe for a great way to gently exfoliate your skin without introducing harmful chemicals. Mash one avocado in a small bowl. Then take a handful of nuts (I recommend almonds) soak them in water to soften them. Then mix the two together to form a cream/paste. Apply this to your skin, let it sit for ten minutes then gently rinse with cool water.
This is probably the most important step, moisturize.
The most common way to moisturize is with oils. Almost any oil can be used but its best to stick with the virgin oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and chamomile. But another way is with the use of fruit lotions.
One lotion that has proven successful with treating eczema symptoms is a lotion made with the leaves of blueberry. This can be found at any health food store.
