Natural Remedies to Heal a Skin Rash

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Skin rashes of any kind are no fun. Whether they’re something mild like a reaction to something in your laundry detergent, or something more serious like a food allergy or skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, skin rashes can be major pains (pun intended) that can flare out of nowhere. Many things can lead to skin rashes, which makes the root cause incredibly hard to pinpoint. If you’re in the process of trying to figure out what’s causing your rash, or you’ve encountered something such as poison ivy that causes a rash, there are some natural remedies you can use to help with the painful itching and swollen skin that both come with rashes of all kinds. Some options may even provide healing to the rash if it treats the root cause.

First, be aware that while some chemically-based skin products may help with symptoms, they also contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to the body. Parabens and petroleum-based agents are two very common ingredients found in most over-the-counter and prescription creams that can both lead to endocrine (hormone) problems and can cause potential damage to the internal organs. They also usually don’t cure a rash, but merely treat the itching.

Below are some of the most common ways you can help heal a skin rash naturally. Please keep in mind that these may take several applications (some may even take months) before the rash goes away, however, they do provide helpful nutrients for the skin and will not cause toxicity to the body. Many can also provide an immediate soothing to the skin when a rash flares.

1. Coconut and Tea Tree Oil

Coconut Oil

Skin fungal infections are usually seen through skin rashes such as ringworm, psoriasis and even forms of eczema (though not all). They’re referred to as dermatitis rashes and can occur for various reasons. They are not normally indicative of internal yeast infections (like candida), though they can be in some more severe cases. You should not allow these infected areas to become too moist with water, but should treat them with anti-fungal agents that will also soothe red spots and possibly sores that occur from the rashes. Tea tree oil is a potent anti-fungal that you can purchase as an essential oil. Combine it with coconut oil (raw, extra-virgin and cold pressed organic oil) and apply after you shower. Pat try once it has set and do this daily to provide relief. This may take weeks to months to cure the rash, but will provide immediate relief for pain and itching.

 

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV

Apple cider vinegar is a health, beauty, and lifestyle “hack” that everyone should jump in on ASAP! It’s not just helpful for treating acne, but can also fight fungus on the skin that causes rashes. If you have a rash that is not fungal-related, apple cider vinegar may not work, however, for skin rashes like ringworm and fungal-related forms of eczema, apple cider vinegar will kill the fungus on the skin due to its anti-microbial properties. Do this after you shower and apply with the mixture above for best results.

 

 

3. Anti-Fungal Supplements/Foods

Some natural (preferably organic and non-GMO) anti-fungal supplements that contain black walnut hull, caprylic acid, tea tree oil, oregano, garlic and yucca, along with probiotics, can also help heal fungal conditions that lead to a rash on the skin. Keep in mind if your rash is not fungal-related, these may not help, but in conditions such as candida yeast overgrowth that leads to skin rashes, these anti-fungal supplements will help fight the root cause. If candida is the cause of your rash, a whole foods diet free of refined sugars and processed foods should also be observed since sugar and processed foods feed yeast. Interestingly enough, mangosteen powder, a fruit-based superfood, is also one of the best natural foods that can help with skin fungal infections, including eczema, candida, and ringworm. It’s also a good choice since you can consume the raw whole food powder internally (such as in a smoothie or oatmeal), or use the whole fruit (pictured above) if you have access to it.  As a benefit, mangosteen a great source of Vitamin C and tastes like a sweet tart berry, which makes it one of the more exciting ways to treat a rash!

 

4. Aloe Vera

To simply help with itching, aloe vera is a timeless classic that can be applied to the skin for immediate result. It is also rich in natural vitamins and minerals that can help assist with healing and soothing the skin. Fresh aloe vera is best, but if you don’t have access to any, a cream or aloe vera gel from the health food store will also work. Apply after showering and allow it to dry. This is one of the best treatments for rashes related to poison ivy.

 

5. Low Histamine Diet

One of the most recent findings of skin rashes is an intolerance to high histamine foods. This is of course, not the case for all rashes, but only for certain individuals with sensitive immune systems. Histamines are natural substances that occur in all foods. They are not harmful for  most people or anything to fear, yet for those that have an auto-immune disease or a sensitive or overactive immune system, consuming high histamine foods can be a miserable experience. They increase immune system activity as the body produces anti-histamines to get rid of them. As a result, rash flares can occur, leaving a person itching uncontrollably, breaking out in rashes, and even feeling sick. Foods naturally very high in histamines include: processed meats, cheese, dairy, tomatoes, any fermented food made from yeast (like kefir, alcohol, bread, distilled vinegar), eggs, caffeine, sugar, chocolate, spices (not herbs), high oxylate foods like spinach, condiments with vinegar, and overly ripe fruit.

Leafy greens, fresh vegetables, fresh fruit (except tomatoes and overly ripe fruits), whole grains, beans, legumes, raw nuts and seeds (except peanuts that are prone to yeast and mold), and other foods that are low in histamines are recommended if you find that high histamine foods cause you to break out. Most plant-based eaters will be safe since extremely high histamine foods are largely found in animal-based foods, but avoiding chocolate, caffeine,fermented and yeast foods, along with sugary foods is also necessary as well. Most histamine rashes are only temporary until the immune system begins to function normally again. A more restricted histamine diet may be necessary for a period of time until the condition improves.

Other Considerations …

If you have a skin allergy, remember that you may also want to consider if a food allergy is the cause. Wheat and/or gluten, nuts, eggs, dairy, sesame, fish and crustaceans are the eight most common food allergens known in the United States. Eliminating these can help you identify if these are a cause of your rash, or if it is caused by something else.

Itching may be no fun, but always try these natural options first. If you have dealt with skin rashes and have your own natural remedy, let us know. Comment below and share!

I was diagnosed with genital herpes about 2 years ago but believe I\'ve had it for about 4 years. With early outbreaks, I had severe itching before an outbreak; it drove me crazy. Then a sore would appear in that spot (most of the time on outer labia, although I have gotten them near the clitoris and near the rectum too). I had hoped the frequency would decrease over time, but it has not. I was having roughly 8 to 10 outbreaks per year, sometimes one right after another. I have been to the Doctors servers times to get it treated. They all come back. . I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can\'t seem to treat the larger ones. They don\'t get any bigger, but then they can\'t shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other remedy about how to get rid of it permanently. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! i wanted to get rid of it so bad Finally I went on net to see if i could get any help it was then i came across some series of testimony on how DR.OKEYTO has help people in getting rid of HERPES PERMANENTLY with herbal medicine so quickly i contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which i takes for some couples of days, and i take it as he says before I notice all sours in my genitals were all dried up and Gone thanks DR.OKEYTO for putting a smile on my face again i will forever remain great-full to you for your cute medicine no more itching and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR.OKEYTO for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it permanently.

i don,t really know how i manage to contact herpes,until doctor confirm that i am herpes positive.i was lost in thought when doctor mcken Fred break this news to me because i never experience any sign and symptoms. i could not sleep or do something reasonable for a week because doctor mcken fred told me that it has no cure yet but he prescribe some drugs such as acyclovir (Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex),for me because they\'re recommended for treating primary genital herpes outbreaks.i kept taking several drugs for the past 22 years now just to subsidize because the cure is not out yet.after much investigation about this cure on internet, and i have lost a lot dollars to Nigeria scammers. during Donald trump election with Hilary Clinton election, i was watching you-tube during the election campaign and a young lady you-tube page prompt up and she was sharing a video on how she got cured from herpes, and i saw several people comment below on how doctor oosa cure them from herpes and other diseases.i reply the lady who share the comment and she gave me all doctor oosa contact info that i needed in reaching him.i called and explain to him that i have been living with this virus for 22 years, he gave me assurance that i will be cure within a week and few day. although i was doubtful but i have no other option than to give a try to his treatment. he told me to pay before the medicine can be deliver to me address that i sent to him but i was so confident in paying for the medicine because he was not from Africa. after the payment, i got the medicine within 3 days and i use it as instructed.to shorting the story i was cured less than 2 weeks and it was confirmed by doctor Graham that i am negative of herpes.here is doctor oosa email address doctoroosaherbalhome@gmail.com . i want all viewers who view my comment to please send my gratitude to him and i wish him long life and successful family. if you have herpes and other diseases as well please contact him asap because i am a witness of his medicine and i hope you will be the next to share yours comment. thanks doctor oosa.( doctoroosaherbalhome@gmail.com )

Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Aba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is dr.abaherbalhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( dr.abaherbalhome@gmail.com ) or you can whatsApp his mobile number on +2348107155060

I was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 years ago. At first, I was emotionally devastated. My symptoms were bad, and I just felt like I was going to die. My dentist didn\'t want to see me anymore when I told her that I had the virus, and my family reacted very badly. It was quite an effort, but I didn\'t give up. Just few months ago i found a herbal cure post in health forum, many people seem to discuss about this Action Cleanser Herbal medicine by Dr. Dalandi Jalil. I contacted him on actionherbals@gmail.com and he offered to cure me with his herbal medicine, i had the treatment for two weeks and everything was okay with me, I’m so much excited that i got hundred percent rid to the virus out of my life. You have the email here to contact him, actionherbals@gmail.com
