If you suffer from that common horrible itchy red rash then you are not alone. It is estimated that over 10% of the world’s population also suffers from some form of eczema (with higher incidences in the Western world). When it comes to treatment then you have a few options that can you can do: visit the doctor and get a prescription cream or use lifestyle changes and natural cures for eczema.
This article will focus on the natural and low cost ways that you can try to cure your eczema, and the best thing is that they don’t have to cost a lot of money!
Since eczema is a reaction from your immune system to some allergen, the best thing you can do is become a detective and try and work out which allergen is causing the problem. The most common allergens include certain foods, dust, soaps and detergents and pet hair/dander.
Therefore making sure your home is as dust free as possible so you don’t have to deal with that. If you can arrange it, try getting someone else to do the vacuuming or dusting so you don’t have to deal with it.
Same goes with anything that involves detergents such as washing dishes, doing laundry and various other cleaning agents. You could try using natural alternatives to these cleaning supplies such as grandma’s old vinegar and baking soda recipes.
Often just making those small changes can be enough to help reduce any symptoms.
While you are waiting for your body’s natural defenses to kick in, use a moisturiser that contains no artificial ingredients or perfumes. Some of the better choices are Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Care Cream.
Finally you should take a look at your diet. Many times an unknown food allergy is the cause of eczema symptoms. The most common culprits are dairy, gluten/wheat and citrus fruits.
Natural cures for eczema usually involve trying to find the cause of your eczema first and then dealing with it holistically so you treat the cause and not the symptoms.
