    Remedies to treat Allergic Reactions

    These allergic reactions can lead to rashes, itching, redness, swelling, raised bumps, scaling or flaking and cracked skin.

    1. Use Oatmeal:

    Oatmeal has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe itching caused by allergic reactions. You can use an oatmeal bath or poultice.

    An oatmeal bath requires you to mix one cup of powdered oatmeal with lukewarm water. Immerse your body into the oatmeal bath water and rinse after 30 minutes.

    An oatmeal poultice requires ¼ cup of powdered oatmeal mixed with one teaspoon of water. Apply the paste to the affected area. Clean the paste with a damp cloth after 30 minutes.

    2. Baking soda:

    Baking soda works to balance the pH levels in your body. It also soothes your skin allergy with the help of its anti-inflammatory properties.

    Mix one cup of baking soda with lukewarm water and stir it well.  Soak in this mix for 15 minutes. You can also prepare a paste by adding four teaspoons of baking soda to water. Apply it to the affected area; leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse.

    3. Coconut oil:

    Coconut oil is rich in Vitamins, E, K, and fatty acids, all of which help to reduce inflammation, soothe the skin, and reduce flaking and itching. Coconut oil can be used on the skin directly or in combination with olive oil. Gently massage it into your skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.

    4. Ice therapy:

    Ice helps numb the skin and reduces blood circulation on the affected area, healing the allergic patch. Hold the ice pack on the allergic patch for 10-15 minutes to find relief.

    5. Tulsi

    Tulsi has purifying and healing properties that can treat and soothe your skin allergies. Consume dried tulsi powder with warm water to purify the blood and promote quick healing. You can also apply tulsi paste to the affected parts. Or, boil 25 to 30 tulsi leaves in 100 ml mustard oil and apply the strained oil to your skin.

    Homeopathic treatment for skin allergy

    These natural remedies can help manage the symptoms of a skin allergy; however, homeopathy can help treat skin allergies in a natural, safe, and side-effect free way from the root.
