This skin infection called eczema is caused when their is growth of pustules on the skin from which there is a release of clear fluid. It is considered as one of the most harmful chronic skin disorder.
Many people with skin problems turn to natural eczema remedies because they have developed side effects from using eczema medications, or because the medications that used to work for them become less and less effective over time. Eczema natural remedies don’t require you to buy expensive products, and most of what they require is available at home or in a store selling organic products.
1. Castor Oil has many cleansing and healing properties and can work well to soothe eczema, but it tends to be very thick and will not work well on facial skin.
2. Take Vitamin E every day and it can significantly reduce the irritating effects of eczema. Research suggests that people from 10 to 60 years old took Vitamin E for six months and their symptoms of eczema reduced greatly.
3. Some natural remedies for eczema include the use of oatmeal, a moisturizing cleanser, and a moisturizing lotion that does not contain the harsh chemicals that irritate the skin. Oatmeal baths hydrate the skin and keep it from drying out. It is very gentle and relieves itching to help the skin heal. Oatmeal is good for the inside of your body and the outside as well.
4. One home remedy for eczema that is not well-known is camphor oil. In making a camphor oil treatment, take one tablespoon of camphor and mix it into sandalwood. The result will be a paste, which when applied topically, will give you instant relief from the discomfort and inconvenience of eczema.
5. A short steam bath can help open your pores, hydrate your skin and release toxins from your body. Be sure to drink plenty of water when you are in the steam bath.
6. Change your diet to a low carb diet and this can help get rid of or reduce the itching and inflammation caused by eczema. People who have tried this say that by just cutting out sugars, flour, potatoes and rice have seen a decrease in eczema flare ups.
7. Using a natural moisturizing cleanser which contains a combination of comfrey root, slipper elm bark and white oak bark will help cleanse the skin without drying. It is also a good cleanser to keep the itchiness and inflammation at bay, and can be used on children. When it comes to a moisturizing lotion, keep your skin hydrated with a formula that contains licorice extracts and blueberry leaf.
8. This home remedy is easy to make and is quite effective. Takes leaves from the spearmint and grind it into a mortar and pestle to create a paste. Apply it directly to the affected area and the spearmint paste may be diluted with water. Spearmint paste can reduce the sting and swelling that can be caused by eczema.
