Home remedies

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:
  1. Burdock root. Take 500 milligrams three times a day, with meals.
  2. Sarsaprilla root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.
  3. Yarrow. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.
  4. Goldenseal. Take 500 milligrams three times a day, with meals.
  5. Poke root. Make a tea by steeping 1 tablespoon of the herb in a cup of water. Drink this twice a day.
  6. Red clover. Take 500 milligrams three times a day.
  7. Yellow dock root. Take it as directed by the manufacturer.
  8. 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:
  9. Aloe vera gel and green clay soothe the skin.
  10. 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.
  11. Chickweed infusion can be used to bathe the area to stop itching.
  12. 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.
  13. Jewel-weed, 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.
  14. 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.
