Although there are lots of clinical treatments in the medical world for Eczema, often times it still contains harmful fragrances or chemicals that further irritate the skin. Thankfully there are far more natural remedies than the commercial products out there. Using a natural remedy will save money and is usually just as effective as or more so than the chemical packed creams and cleansers. Most of the products used in these natural mixtures can be found at the local health food store. These mixtures also range from oils, creams, and scrubs.
There are two main kinds of oils used to help with itching. Olive oil rubbed on the affected areas can take the itch away as well as moisturize the skin.
The other oil is virgin coconut oil. This is probably the most popular and seems to be the most affective as well. Again, just apply it to the itchy patches and let it soak for at least ten minutes, you can even leave it on if you wish depending on the area.
Some of the ingredients for the creams are pricey but not as pricey as the commercial products and much safer.
One mixture calls for one tablespoon of sandalwood paste and one tablespoon of camphor, mush together until it forms a paste. This is to be applied to the rashes.
You can also apply nutmeg paste to the affected areas as well.
The key to treating Eczema is to keep the skin clean and moisturized.
Be careful with the scrubs you choose. Not every scrub is going to work for every individual, a lot of factors, such as genetics, play a role in what works and what does not.
One recipe requires only one avocado and some almonds (or any nut of choice). First you need to soak the nuts in a small amount of water to soften them a bit. Then mash the avocado and mix the nuts into it. Carefully apply this to the areas with Eczema and let sit for ten minutes. Wipe the majority off with a soft towel and gently cleanse with pure water if possible.
There are many other home remedies to treat this condition. So if one doesn’t work just try another one until you find one that works for your body.
