Eczema - April 4th 2018, 03:56 AM

I am having an outbreak and I am wondering if I have to go to the doctor to get it healed or if there is natural stuff. I will be going to the doctor when I can because I have bronchitis but I used to know of natural remedies but forgot. Just stuff to relieve the itching and all that.

I know you all can't diagnose but it's itchy and I can't get in to the doctor soon as I will be busy Thursday and Friday.

I would recommend seeing a doctor. However, there are some natural things I have used in the past. I find epsom salt baths with Himalayan salt and ACV help me. Chamomile tea baths can also help, I steep 5-6 tea bags for an hour and then mix it in my bath to soak. I think you can have an essential oil bath (the only oil that I use is tea tree oil but there are others you can use).

Hope that you can stop the itching!

Thank you for the response!

I was able to get to the doctor and he didn't really diagnose me or, he didn't tell me what he thought it was, it was kind of frustrating but I did get an ointment. It's no longer itchy though and it does seem to be improving.

It definitely wasn't my normal hives breakout that I get which was a relief as I was starting to worry about that.

The tips about baths are helpful. I don't currently have access to a bath but I am going to keep notes for future reference.
