If you suffer from a skin allergy, that means you are probably allergic to something you come in contact with regularly. But that is not a hard and fast rule. Many skin reactions are the result of allergies that would not seem to be related to a topical problem. So, therefore, you can get an allergy from food or even from something that you breathe in.
The Process of Finding Out What is Causing Your Skin Allergy
This is a science in its own right and a difficult one at that. But the steps you might take to deal with that skin reaction once it has shown up and begun to make you uncomfortable are not cryptic at all. In many cases, we can get control over the rash itself using natural remedies or even home remedies that we have come to rely on for the general health of our families.
Here are a few suggestions…
Over the counter moisturizers can work wonders on your skin. It is important to keep your skin moist. Otherwise, it can dry out and cause other problems.
These simple, natural products can relieve dry skin, which is the source of much of the itchiness.
Just be sure the moisturizers you use are not for cosmetic use and don’t contain perfumes or other artificial ingredients.
The great thing about using a moisturizer is that you can use it all you want.
Another great way to keep your skin from drying out is to enrich the air of your room with a humidifier. You could even add some natural or alternative medicine to the steam from the humidifier to provide even more healthy properties.
One of the most popular herbal applications you can use is aloe vera gel. If you cannot find a plant, find a good cream that contains aloe vera.
Another popular application is the use of a paste made of clarified butter and turmeric powder to help with the reaction. It is preferable to do this before bedtime so that the turmeric gets a chance to work from within uninterrupted.
“I am a 46-year-old woman. I have been battling an allergy rash on my face and forearms for about 5 years. The face rash has been occasional but the arm rash has been constant going from better to worse and back but never going away. Being in the sun always aggravated the rash. July of this year while at the Del Mar Fair I came across your booth. I purchased a small jar of Corium 21. After about 3 weeks the rash disappeared!!! I have spent hundreds of dollars on prescription and over the counter creams and medicines. This is the first one to make it go away! What a blessing it was to come across Corium 21.” – M.
