How To Treat Skin Rashes with Home Remedies

See here how to take care of your skin and how to protect it especially in summers!

Skin rashes are annoyingly itchy and can become more infectious if scratched. And as the urge to scratch is nearly irresistible, there are several natural and home remedies that you can put to use. These remedies involve literally no effort and fancy ingredients, so you can prepare them with a few basic products readily available in your kitchen.

  1. Aloe Vera 

Aloe vera is loaded with healthy nutrients. It keeps the skin healthy.

All you have to do is wash and clean your skin rash with water, scrape out some amount of fresh aloe vera gel, and then apply it directly over the itchy area. Let it absorb as it will decrease itchiness and irritation. You can do this twice daily

  1. Coconut Oil 

Coconut oil is blessed with strong antiseptic properties that can effectively treat skin rashes.

To make this work, just take a few drops of the oil and rub it over the affected area gently. Since it is a safe moisturizer for both skin and scalp, you can repeat this home remedy multiple times a day for better results

  1. Cold Compress 

A cold compress helps reduce itching and burning sensations. Take a clean piece of cloth, put some ice cubes on it, and wrap them. You can also dampen the cloth with icy cold water. Once done, place the cloth over the rash and repeat as needed. The cooling effect limits blood flow to the area affected. 

Most simple rashes will improve with gentle skin care and by avoiding irritating substances. You can also follow these general guidelines:

  • Avoid scrubbing your skin. 

  • Use gentle cleansers

  • Avoid applying cosmetic lotions or ointments directly on the rash.

  • Use warm (not hot) water for cleaning. Pat dry, don't rub.

  • Stop using any recently added cosmetics or lotions.

  • Leave the affected area exposed to the air as much as possible.
