Skin rashes are common, and there are a lot of them. Some come from allergic reactions, while others could be fungal or viral in nature. Generally speaking, a rash is considered any change to your skin’s normal color or texture.
Let us look at some tips for providing different kind of skin rash remedies
- Coconut oil – One of the most soothing skin applications that one can ever find. Whether it’s a simple rash or a more hurtful burn, a daily application of coconut oil a couple of times a day can help cure any skin reaction. Apply it with a light hand with fingertips on the rash for a few days till allergy subsides.
- Lemon – You might think lemon, because of its citric acid content might burn you would be surprised how it actually works. Simple squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on to the rash and let it air dry. It might sting a little if you’ve already itched away at the rash and the skin is irritated but it would soon soothe it down once it dries off.
- Apple cider vinegar – with its acid content and natural base, apple cider vinegar makes for one of the best skin applications to help treat irritation and rashes. It has a good antiseptic and antifungal action and this makes it a good anti-itching agent. Dip a cotton ball or cloth in a little apple cider vinegar and dab on the itchy area. Or if you feel a general itchy sensation all over the body, add a cupful into your bath water.
- Aloe Vera – Aloe Vera is one of nature’s miracle cures. And it is as close to natural it can get since you pluck the aloe Vera leaf from the plant, split it open and apply the gel straight to the skin. You could also buy packaged gel from the supermarket but keeping a plant at home is much better and doesn’t require much up-keep either. With all its moisturizing action, aloe Vera is one of the most effective skin smoothening agents. When you rub the gel over an itchy spot, it helps reduce the skin irritation in that area and provides quick relief from itching.
