Natural Eczema Treatment
Quick eczema remedies (external skin protection and soothing):
Sea Salt Bath
Sea salt bath not only helps to remove dead skin cells and restore beauty to damaged skin, but it is also a perfect cure for eczema. Sea salt is rich in minerals and helps to reduce pain, sooth inflammation, improve circulation and hydrate tissues. You can make whole body baths or just small amounts of water for local treatment. For a whole body bath add 1 to 2 cups of unrefined high quality sea salt to a warm bath tub. You can add some natural herbal oils to the bath to make it even more soothing. Make sure the water is not too hot. Soak in the bath for at least 15 minutes. Sea salt baths will also detox your body by widening skin pores and letting you sweat without skin irritation.
Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe Vera is a miracle plant - it can cure burns, reduce inflammation, sooth itching and moisturize your skin. Aloe Vera can sometimes give you relief in a matter of minutes. If possible, you should try to obtain your own Aloe Vera plant and get the fresh juice from its leaves. If that is not possible, try to find a 99.9% pure Aloe Vera juice from your store. You can apply Aloe Vera juice multiple times a day to cure eczema.
Calendula cream has moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties. Calendula speeds eczema healing by increasing blood flow to the damaged area and by helping the body produce collagen proteins, which are used to heal skin and connective tissue. Calendula cream will keep you safe from pathogens entering your bloodstream through damaged skin.
Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and an excellent skin moisturizing agent. Make sure to use cold-pressed, extra virgin, unrefined olive oil as a cure for eczema. Olive oil does not dry easily so it keeps your skin moisturized for a long time. A good trick is to apply it on your eczema, right after shower, when the skin is still wet. This way you will seal moisture inside the skin.
My daughter used to have moderate eczema and always had a large patch on her stomach. What finally got rid of it was the GAPS diet with plenty of FCLO or fatty fish.
Unrefined shea butter helped heal it a bit too.
