Natural Treatments for Rashes & Dry, Itchy Skin

Natural Treatments for Rashes & Dry, Itchy Skin

Irritated skin is not just uncomfortable – it can also have a big impact on your self-confidence and negatively affect your quality of life. People seek naturopathic medicine for irritated skin due to a range of symptoms. These can include:

  • Dryness
  • Sensitivity
  • Itchiness
  • Recurring rashes
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Scaly, rough and leathery patches
  • Dark-coloured areas
  • Weeping and oozing

Certain skin conditions can cause such intense itchiness that sufferers will scratch until the rash bleeds. This makes the rash even itchier, resulting in something called the ‘itch-scratch’ cycle. Understandably, this makes many people desperate for fast and effective naturopathic medicine for their condition.

Causes

Often the difficulty with chronically itchy dry skin is that there is no sole cause – rather it results from a combination of certain skin conditions and triggers. These can include everything from genetic predispositions through to certain irritants, allergens, microbes and foods.
A natural treatment for your skin issues may involve minimising your contact with common triggers such as:

  • Soaps, detergent, disinfectant and shampoo
  • Dust mites
  • Cats, dogs and other pets
  • Pollens
  • Bacteria and viruses
  • Dairy products, eggs, wheat, nuts and seeds
  • Stress
  • Hot weather
  • High and low humidity
  • Perspiration
  • Hormonal changes (in women)
