Rashes and Eczema

Rashes can be confusing when first presented and viewed and are too often misdiagnosed. It is very common for psoriasis and eczema to be confused, yet they have quite different causes and characteristics.

Contact dermatitis can be caused by an acute allergic reaction to something that has touched the skin. There are also many plants that contain compounds which can illicit dramatic histamine reactions.

The standard course of action is usually to administer a steroid cream to stop the histamine reaction. In cases where the cause is solely a histamine reaction, the steroid approach functions reasonably well.

Some cases, however, do not respond to this course of action because there is a pathogen in the skin that is really the underlying cause. In either case it is highly recommended to refrain from long-term use of steroid creams as they can be dangerous.

A rash can be caused by any number of irritants from an allergic reaction to infection. Oftentimes, a rash will appear and disappear idiopathically; the cause is never truly known.

In some cases, the rash can persist for long periods of time and cause significant damage to the skin. These skin conditions are usually called eczema or acute contact dermatitis. In either case, certain requirements need to be met in order to facilitate repression and correction of the condition.

Eczema is believed to be caused by a symbiotic relationship between bacteria and fungus or a virus and fungus.The fungus disrupts the skin and breaks it down into a form that the bacteria can use for food. The virus uses the broken skin to allow penetration into the lower dermal layers and to steal their cell machinery for replication.

In either case, a holistic solution requires that the cause be dealt with along with the symptoms. And finally, the skin (the body’s essential barrier to the outside world) needs to be rebuilt.

Deal with the Pain

First and foremost, the symptoms usually include pain, itching and inflammation. These need to be dealt with immediately to secure the comfort of the patient. Nature’s Rite Rash Relief uses a group of herbs that are very effective in relieving pain, itch and inflammation.

These herbs include:

  • White Willow Bark
  • Arnica Montana
  • Calendula,
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Poke

The combination of these herbs quiets the overactive nerves allowing for a temporary relief from the pain, itch and inflammation.

Stop the Infection

Since the cause of the outbreak can be fungal, bacterial or viral, we also need to introduce some herbs that will address the causative agents and stop their progress. For this, Rash Relief has been endowed with:

  • Poke
  • Chaparral
  • Blood Root
  • Neem
  • Burdock
  • Humic Acid

This powerful group of natural constituents will shut down the invasions that cause most cases of eczema. Stopping the cause is essential to allowing the skin to heal.

Heal the Skin

The third step in the holistic process of relieving the dermatitis is to help the body heal the resultant damaged skin. Rash Relief initiates more rapid skin repair by employing cell proliferators. These are Calendula, Chickweed and, of course, Comfrey. Tropical oils are introduced to facilitate the first step in healing of the skin.

This important and significant balance of herbs and oils is established in a base of Aloe Vera to condition the damaged region and balance the skin while the healing process advances. Since the anti-viral Humic acid tends to make the mixture black, titanium dioxide is added to turn this into a pleasant skin brown color. The fact that it is a water-based mixture allows for ready absorption into the skin and easy painless removal and washing.

Here again, in this mixture, we see the three-pronged approach of: relieving the symptoms, treating the cause and then enabling the body to repair the damage. This is the cornerstone of all well-balanced holistic formulations.

Solving eczema without using dangerous pharmaceutical steroids and chemicals is not a simple matter. Since its original inception, Rash Relief has been continually improved upon to provide you with the present form.

It is our belief that this represents a natural solution that is gentler, healthier and works better is more effective than anything the pharmaceutical world has to offer.

The results speak for themselves. Many cases of eczema and unidentified rashes that have been troubling patients for months or years have been relieved and have disappeared. Even poison ivy and fire-ant bites have been relieved with this powerful lotion.
