3 Alternative Medicines For Eczema [Unartificial]

Updated on August 11, 2013

If you’re here looking for alternative medicines for eczema...

...I’m sure you’re aware of the fact that conventional drugs prescribed from the doctors are never practical enough.

The first medicine the Western doctors will hand their eczema patients is steroid creams, or commonly known as cortisone creams.

The problem with using cortisone creams for eczema is it temporarily masks the symptoms of your inflammatory responses and delay it so the itches stop but come altogether as soon as you stop the medications.

Let me give you 3 alternative medicines for your eczema that are all purely natural.

1. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the method of using essential oils and other aromatic compounds to treat your problem.

There are various common essential oils that you can easily find from your local health stores and even supermarkets.

  • Lavender Oil
  • Geranium Oil
  • Eucalyptus Oil
  • Myrrh Oil
  • Frankincense Oil

Purchase one of these oils home and give yourself a shot, rub those oils on your affected skin spots regularly every single day for at least 2 weeks without pauses to see effects.

2. Herbal Skin Pastes

The truth is, many natural products out there are designed for your skin, and are simply made of a combination of several herbs and several oils.

Why can’t you do the same?

The real only problem is it’s quite hard to find the herbal stores and it’s complicated at first sight.

Chances are, you can save a lot of money from making your own skin paste and you can even try out new mixtures.

Here’s a dirty trick, go to any skin health store that sells natural moisturizers, take a picture of the ingredients at the back on the labels and make your very own same product at home!

Also, you could try to mix in one of the essential oils mentioned above to your homemade recipe.

Do you have itchy skin?

I once did, until I recently learned simple ways that can relieve itching for real, learn how you too can also greatly reduce your itchy eczema skin.

3. Herbal Juice

Almost all traditional medicines are based on the use of natural herbal remedies.

While the two methods above are for external use (actually, certain oils can be ingested too), herbal mixtures could also be ingested to heal your body from the within.

The difficulty with making your own herbal juice is… you have to make your own. To someone who doesn’t have enough experience in this field could make dangerous mixtures, in wrong dosages or even useless combos.

I suggest going to your local herbalist for professional advice.
