Eczema (or dermatitis) is an inflammatory rash that causes redness, swelling, blistering, or itchy skin. It has been reported to have affected millions around the globe. Eczema is a condition that cannot be treated. However, we can manage it. This article will provide some home remedies to eczema.
Some people can get eczema from the waste matter from house dust mites. Studies show that reducing the number of dust mites can help to reduce eczema symptoms. Every week, clean your rooms thoroughly. To remove dust, wipe down floors, furniture, and doors with a damp cloth. Dust mites love your bedding.
Reduce the number of dust mites in your bed by removing the bedclothes each morning. Also, air the bed for at most an hour with your windows closed. Buy mite-resistant sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers that you can wash once a week. Before changing your bedding, vacuum it. Duvets and pillows should be washed frequently. Dust mites love warm and damp conditions. Keep them away by ensuring that your home’s humidity levels are between 45-55%. To reduce humidity, use a hygrometer.
Eczema can be controlled by controlling the temperature. Some forms of eczema can be exacerbated by extreme heat or cold, especially atopic. Dress appropriately, preferably in cotton clothing that does not itch. When you wash dishes, etc., your skin will come in contact with the water. Wearing gloves is one home remedy for eczema.
Rubber gloves will protect your hands. Rubber gloves can be replaced with cotton gloves if you are allergic. If you’re going outside in cold weather, wear gloves. Eczema can be triggered by household cleaners that contain chemicals. Avoid using chemicals-laden cleaners and opt instead for eco-friendly cleaners made from natural ingredients such as vinegar and lemon.
These natural remedies are great for eczema. Lemon, which is rich in citric acid, has bleaching and antibacterial properties. Half a lemon can be used to clean the wash basins and bath.
To brighten clothes and bed linen, you can use lemon as a natural bleach. Before washing, soak the clothes and linen in a bucket of lemon-juiced water overnight. Lemon acts as a deodorizer. A few lemon slices can be placed in the fridge to keep it fresh.
White vinegar is non-smoking and the best type of vinegar to use in your home. Use vinegar to clean kitchen countertops and tiles. Vinegar is also a great cleaner for windows. Combine one cup of vinegar with one litre of warm water. Spray onto your window, then wipe off with a cloth and buff with crumpled newspaper to prevent streaking.
