The Best Home Remedies for Eczema Relief

Eczema can be extremely vicious and can flare up at any time. However, it is important to find a cream and treatment that works best for you, eczema’s unpredictability can leave you in a pinch. Eczema generally occurs when your skin is producing less fat and oils than it should be and is commonly a genetic condition. Instead of suffering through the itch when you’re out of your preferred treatment, there are a few home remedies you can utilize for relief.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a wonderfully versatile substance that works exceptionally well as an eczema treatment. The oil can sink deep into the skin, filling in any dry patches with ease. With coconut oil’s growing popularity for a variety of uses, you may already have some in your pantry, but it can be found at nearly any grocery store as well.

Oatmeal Baths: An oatmeal bath can be an excellent way to relieve eczema symptoms all over the body. Wrap some oatmeal up in cheesecloth, muslin, or similar material and tie it below the faucet on your bathtub. Let the water run until the tub is full and the water is milky, then soak for about 10-15 minutes. Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce the inflammation and itchiness caused by eczema.

Honey: Honey has everything you need to relieve symptoms of eczema as it is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and helps heal broken skin. Apply a thin layer over the affected area for a quick fix during a flare-up. Unfortunately, honey is very sticky, so you may want to cover it with a bandage, so it does not get all over.
