How to Naturally Treat a Leg Skin Rash
Treating an Itchy Skin Rash
Many things can cause a skin rash. Fungal infection, scabies (itching and small bumpy red spots), diabetes, and pretibial myxedema are a few common causes.
If you suffer from diabetes and break out in a rash, consult your doctor immediately. Consult a doctor also if you are older, and the skin around your shins gets thick and itchy. This may be a result of a pretibial myxedema.
Otherwise, here are some easy treatments for an itchy rash.
Home Treatments for Skin Rashes
- Olive oil applied to the affected area will moisturize and hydrate the skin. This treatment should smoothen and soothe a dry skin rash.
- Aloe vera applied to small, itchy spots restores the skin by killing bacteria. Aloe vera gel also hydrates a dry skin rash.
- Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties. Apply a Vitamin E moisturizer to soften and smooth the skin.
- Oats and aloe vera gel mixed into a paste make an excellent exfoliating remedy. Mix one-half cup oats with a small amount of aloe vera gel (about 20 ml). Add some mild moisturizer or body lotion as well and apply to skin. Allow to sit for a few minutes, and then remove.
