Home Remedies for Eczema

by Sylvia Buchour

Eczema is a skin condition characterized by inflammation, dryness, swelling, and redness. This is common with kids and infants, although anyone at any age, and any nationality can have eczema. The skin may feel rough and thick, and there may even be little bumps on the skin present.

 Regardless of the different types of eczema that is present on your skin, treating it to alleviate symptoms and improve the condition of your skin should be your primary concern. You can buy an eczema lotion, a lotion specifically formulated to keep skin moisturized without triggering any other adverse skin reactions. Below are a few easy home remedies for eczema you can try:


Keep your skin clean.

As the saying goes, prevention is always better than cure. Keep your skin clean, germ-free, and moisturized to prevent having eczema at all. Drinking plenty of water, keeping your skin hydrated, and a balanced diet are a must.


Walnut Scrub

One of the popular home remedies for eczema is to use a walnut scrub. You can actually use any type of nut, but walnut is the most common. Use a blender or a food processor and grind the walnuts until they are coarse. Walnuts contain essential fatty acids which help soften the skin. Blend in some oil, and apply on the affected area.


Oatmeal Scrub

Oats have beta-glucan which creates a protective film on top of the skin which locks in the moisture. You can mix oatmeal with water and then use it as a scrub on the affected area, or use it as a whole body scrub. Using an oatmeal scrub is one of the home remedies for eczema where you can easily find the ingredients and takes a few seconds to prepare. The oatmeal scrub will help reduce itching, cool the skin down, and remove dead skin cells and help the new skin to grow faster.


Using Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has an anti-inflammatory and cooling effect, which makes it one of the popular home remedies for eczema. Kids will find that the affected area is not as itchy as before. Aloe vera also has anti-fungal properties which will prevent any infections. You can grow aloe vera at home, or buy the gel from your local drugstore.


Dandelion and Mint Leaves

One of the home remedies for eczema you can do at home is to make a lotion out of crushed dandelion and mint leaves mixed with coconut oil. Leave it on the affected area for 20-30 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.

These home remedies for eczema can help alleviate the symptoms and improve how your skin looks. These home remedies also help reduce itching and keep your skin moisturized. Of course, it pays to check with your doctor first to find out if itís OK for you to use these home remedies for eczema after your condition has been assessed. Your doctor may also recommend certain medications for you; be sure to tell your doctor if youíll be using any of the home remedies mentioned above to make sure there will not be any adverse reactions.
