Medic for Rashes

9. Calendula


Calendula is an excellent herb for soothing skin irritations, rashes, ulcers, eczema, dry skin, wounds and bruises due to its anti-inflammatory, astringent, antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties.

  • Apply calendula oil on the affected area and leave it on for a few hours. Do this at least twice daily until the rash heals completely. Calendula-infused olive oil can also be used in the same way. To make this oil, pour a generous amount of olive oil over calendula flowers (let them wilt for about 12 hours to remove moisture) in an uncovered container and place it in a double boiler. Heat it over low heat (temperature should stay around 100 degrees Fahrenheit) for three to five hours, strain the oil and store it in a glass jar.
  • Alternatively, add a few drops of calendula oil to bath water and soak in it for 15 minutes, or use calendula tea as a compress.
  • You can also apply calendula cream, lotion, or ointment a few times a day until the rash clears.

10. Coriander



Coriander is considered an effective Ayurvedic remedy for rashes and itchy skin, owing to its anti-irritant, soothing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Its inviting scent is also calming and relaxing.

  • Apply a paste of ground coriander leaves on the affected area, leave it on for at least half an hour, and then wash it off. Do this once or twice a day for a few days. (When grinding the leaves, you need not add water.)
  • Boil one teaspoon of coriander seeds in a cup of water. Drink this tea once daily for a few days until the rash heals completely.
  • You can also drink a cup of fresh coriander juice for a few days.

In addition to these home remedies, follow additional measures like leaving the affected area exposed to air whenever possible, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight, and cleaning the rash with warm or tepid water but restricting the use of soaps.

Plus, make sure you do not scratch the problem area or you can end up making it worse. If your rash does not heal within a few days, consult a doctor.

  1. I tried honey and olive oil to relieve my flare up on my face and all i would say is it is the best remedy i have ever used. I will not be using any ointments or creams ever again. Why because I have had eczema all my life and have tried everything going except natural remedies. Totally gobsmacked and I have paid a fortune. The remedy costs no more than a fiver and less than a prescription.

  2. My Granddaughter came down with a nasty rash that is very itchy and painful. I picked up Aloa Vera, Benadryl for kids, apple cider viniger, oatmeal and baking powder. Going to try the Aloa Vera first, ideas? Thanks!

  3. Thank you so very much! for your excellent advice. I have an open skin infection and I am going to fallow your advice.

  4. i used olive oil at night and cold compression during day… its been 3 days and my face is clear now thank you 🙂

  5. Bad chemical burn & rash from hair dye? Just did a oat meal mask dried it out a bit and helped the itching. Now I’m using coconut oil to heal. Jesuse & God can’t say I didn’t call on them 1st?? I was reminded of the ointment that Jesus made for the blind man….lol and got up and made my own. WOW Thanks!

  6. Just tried olive oil,waiting for results ?…hope I see the results soon.Thanks for the comments and advices,I wasnt sure which home remedy to try first.

  7. Ayurvedic way of treating Skin Allergy or Rushes
    Take three of the following items in equal quantity
    *Kokum (Garcinia indica)
    Jira (Cumin Poweder)
    Sakkar (sugar in raw form) – can use sugar instead
    *If unable to find Kokum, use Badiya (Star Anise). If allergic to Sour (Khatta) items, starts with Badiya and after couple of weeks you can start taking Kokum.
    Make all above mentioned ingredients in powder form and take 100grams each and mix it together. You can adjust quantity according to requirement.
    Take one medium spoon three times a day for at least two weeks and then you will notice real benefits.
    These ingredients helps tune-in overly reacting immune system.
    You will love the taste of this mixer and you might want to consume more than required. While taking more, if you find it little hot (hungry feeling) in your tummy, take some bananas, it will cool down digestion systems.
    Note that above recipe can also be taken to improve digestion system or increasing Hunger. There are no side effects but the only benefits…
    My wife had really bad Rush and it was coming after eating pretty much anything. Take couple of steroid dose at start but then realised it is only temporary solution and had very serious long term bad reactions. So instead did a little bit of research and finally managed to find this Ayurvedic recipe from India. My big Thanks to Ayrveda & peoples of India who still holds the knowledge of this ancient way of treatment called AYURVEDA.
