Irritants may result in a rash on the skin, changing skin texture, color, or appearance. The rash may be located in one area of the body or may be present on all areas of the skin. Some rashes are itchy, painful, and swollen. A trip to the physician will result in prescription medication for treatment but why waste time and money when there are natural, inexpensive ways to treat the condition.
You will need:
Step 1: Apply olive oil to the rash. The olive oil has skin healing aspects that will treat the rash. It is also moisturizing and contributes to skin renewal.
Step 2: Apply extract of Aloe Vera to the rash three to four times per day. An alternative is to grow an Aloe Vera plant, snap off a branch, and rub it onto the rash.
Step 3: Prepare an oatmeal bath by pouring one cup of boiled or uncooked oatmeal into warm bath water. Do not use hot bath water because it may make the rash itchier. Soak in this for at least 15 minutes without using any soap. Oatmeal can naturally relive skin rash inflammation.
Step 4: Sprinkle some baking powder onto the hands and apply it onto the rash to make itching subside and dry out the rash.
Step 5: Citrus fruits, tomatoes, broccoli, and sweet potatoes are high in vitamin C and antioxidants. These help to treat skin rashes.
Step 6: Boil a chamomile tea bag and soak a washcloth in the teacup. Allow the washcloth to cool so it will not burn the skin and then apply it to the rash. Reapply the warm soaked rag as necessary.
Step 7: During any treatment, avoid scratching the rash because this may worsen it.
