An eczema is a group of skin conditions that can cause symptoms including redness
Here are 8 home remedies that will heal your eczema in no time.
1. Wear gloves in bed
There are two benefits of wearing gloves while sleeping.
- They seal in the moisture on your hands.
- They also keep you from scratching in your sleep.
One of the biggest causes of inflamed skin is stress and anxiety, so in order to tackle stress for good take time out of your day to focus on rest and relaxation.
3. Moisturize your skin (every day)
4. Use an ice pack
It might seem so simple but yet it is effective, make sure not to press the pack directly on your skin (wrap it in a thin towel or rag). You’ll notice the itching disappear right away.
5. Try a bleach bath
Eczema patients usually find bleach baths to be soothing, however, be careful about how you take them. Consult with a doctor before you try it!
6. Change your diet
Dermatologists have found that foods that are rich in histamines cause their patients to break out more often. Alcohol, fermented foods, cured meats, pickled food, avocados, tomatoes, and goat cheese all contain high levels of histamines.
7. Cut your nails
By clipping your nails you will prevent yourself from making the itching even worse by scratching the inflamed skin.
8. Try anti-itch creams
Any itch cream that is at least 1 percent hydrocortisone will soothe your skin, also Calamine lotion is great for soothing skin.
