Grind oatmeal in a blender to make a fine powder. Add ½ cup of oatmeal powder and ½ cup of baking powder to a tub filled with warm water (hot causes further stress to your skin).

Apply fresh aloe vera or aloe vera gel to the affected area to relieve itching and inflammation. Do this 2-3 times per day.

Apply vitamin E oil to the affected area 2-3 times per day. This works similarly to aloe vera, but the oil is more concentrated and locks in more moisture.
Drink a tea made from 2 teaspoons of powdered stinging nettles and water. Add honey, a natural allergy reliever, for more flavor.
Green Tea and Chamomile Tea
Green tea and chamomile tea are natural antihistamines, so drinking them can help relieve the itch without pills like Benadryl. Drink two cups a day. Sweeten with honey, another natural allergy cure.
