Home Remedies For Rash

An inflammation of the skin, is used to describe many different types of rashes. The skin may itch, flake, scale, thicken, ooze, crust, and/or redden, depending on the type of dermatitis. Rashes can develop anywhere on the body. Certain locations are typical for different forms of rashes. Please refer tot the home remedies rash in this page.

Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, the “itch that rashes” is a chronic, common problem that affects many people and for which there are many possible therapies. It is discussed in its own section (see Eczema). Contact dermatitis is probably the most common type of dermatitis. It is caused by irritation or allergy to something the skin comes in contact with. Types of rashes include irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, and photoallergic contact dermatitis. A common type of allergic contact dermatitis is the rash of poison ivy, oak, and sumac. These also are described in their own section (see Poison Ivy, Oak, and Sumac).


Seborrhea (seborrheic dermatitis) is another distinct type of rash, and is discussed in its own section as well.


List of Home Remedies for Rash

  • Naturopaths believe that when waste products build up and exceed the capacity of the liver and kidneys to get rid of them, the skin has to eliminate the wastes. This can result in dermatitis. The following herbs cause sweating, which naturopaths feel is a good way to excrete the toxins that are trying to get out of your body:


  • Burdock root. Take 500 milligrams three times a day, with meals.


  • Sarsaprilla root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • Yarrow. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • Naturopaths recommend one or more of the follow blood cleansers for rash:


  • Chaparral root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • Dandelion root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • Echinacea. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • Goldenseal. Take 500 milligrams three times a day, with meals.


  • Pau d’arco. Take 500 milligrams three times a day, with meals.


  • Poke root. Make a tea by steeping 1 tablespoon of the herb in a cup of water. Drink this twice a day.


  • Red clover. Take 500 milligrams three times a day.
  • Yellow dock root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.


  • The appropriate specific herbal therapy depends on the cause, location, and type of rash. However, the following therapies will all help relieve itching, no matter what sort of dermatitis you have:


  • Aloe vera gel and green clay soothe the skin.


  • Chamomile cream, calendula lotion, or comfrey ointment should be applied directly to the itchy areas as often as needed, as their anti- inflammatory properties will help relieve your discomfort.


  • Chickweed infusion can be used to bathe the area to stop itching.


  • Cucumber puree, made from peeled, blended fresh cucumbers, can be applied directly to the affected area for three minutes to relieve your itching and pain.


  • Jewelweed, also known as impatiens, can be boiled in a gallon of water, strained, and cooled. The liquid stops itching extremely well. In fact, in clinical trials, it has worked just as well as prescription cortisone creams. Note that while it is sometimes called impatiens, jewelweed is not the same plant that is sold as a flowering annual in home and garden centers.


  • An herbal tea made from two parts each of agrimony and chamomile and one part each of stinging nettle and heart’s-ease can be taken three times a day as an aid to soothing the itching. In addition to drinking the tea, dip a clean cloth into it and apply it as a compress to the affected areas for five minutes every half hour, as needed. Other plants containing natural antihistaminic compounds from which you can make a combination tea include basil, fennel, ginkgo, oregano, tarragon, tea, thyme, and yarrow. These teas should be used in compresses applied to the itchy areas, as well as drunk three times a day.

    Ayurvedic way of treating Skin Allergy or Rushes
    Take three of the following items in equal quantity
    1) Kokum (Garcinia indica)*
    2) Jira (Cumin Poweder)
    3) Sakkar (sugar in raw form) – can use sugar instead
    *If unable to find Kokum, use Badiya (Star Anise). If allergic to Sour (Khatta) items, starts with Badiya and after couple of weeks you can start taking Kokum. You can find these ingredients in nearby Indian stores.
    Make all above mentioned ingredients in powder form and take 100grams each and mix it together. You can adjust quantity according to requirement.
    Take one medium spoon three times a day for at least two weeks and then you will notice real benefits. Once taken the above dose, don’t take Milk products or Sour items for couple of hours.
    Kokum/Badiya helps tune-in overly reacting immune system.
    You can also treat the itching skin by applying mixture of Coconut oil and Kapur (Camphor). Heat up Coconut oil and put few Kapur and shake it till diluted.
    You will love the taste of this mixer and you might want to consume more than required. While taking more, if you find it little hot (hungry feeling) in your tummy, take some bananas, it will cool down digestion systems.
    Note that above recipe can also be taken to improve digestion system or increasing Hunger. There are no side effects but the only benefits…
    My wife had really bad Rush and it was coming after eating pretty much anything. Take couple of steroid dose at start but then realised it is only temporary solution and had very serious long term bad reactions. So instead did a little bit of research and finally managed to find this Ayurvedic recipe from India. My big Thanks to Ayrveda & peoples of India who still holds the knowledge of this ancient way of treatment called AYURVEDA.
