You can greatly reduce the itchy, puss filled outbreaks of eczema with these natural cures.

Home Remedies for Eczema

Primrose oil

Primrose can greatly reduce the outbreaks and symptoms of eczema. Find these at your local vitamin outlet or health food store. They come in 500 milligram capsules and you should follow the instructions on the package as to how many you should take each day.

Stress

Stress can play a significant role with how often and how severe outbreaks occur. Learn to do self talk along with trying daily meditation as one of your home remedies for eczema. Upon awaking each morning take several deep belly breaths. While breathing in say, “I am alive” and then breath out saying “Thank you“. Any time you begin to feel stress coming on you can take a moment and do this breathing exercise. For meditation find a quite space. You can sit on a chair or for those with conditioning you can sit on the floor in a lotus position. Close your eyes and begin focusing on your breath. As your mind wonders off, gently bring it back to focusing on the breath. Breathing deeply and learning to focus only on your own breathing will bring a great deal of relaxation. In time you will grow to look forward to each meditation session as it will not only aid in fewer outbreaks of eczema, but will help improve many aspects of your general health.

Selenium

This is an important mineral that helps the immune system keep skin healthy. Many are considerably deficient in this mineral. Without enough of selenium the immune system simply fails to understand that something is wrong with the skin and never activates the defense system that can heal it.

Vitamins and Minerals

The following are vitamins known to be helpful with skin health. Don`t just supplement, try including more foods high in these vitamins and minerals along with supplementing. Vitamin A:15 milligrams, Vitamin C: Take 500 milligrams 3 times a day for a total of 1500 milligrams a day, Vitamin E: 700 International Units a day, Zinc: 15 milligrams a day for women and 20 milligrams a day for men.

Hydrotherapy

This therapy has also been found helpful for eczema. As one of your home remedies for eczema simply add colloidal oatmeal to a warm bath and take time to refresh with a long soak. This will sooth the skin, stop the itching and help the body to relax.

Omega 3 fatty acid

This special oil is an important aid to the health of skin. Eating foods like walnuts, avocados, mackerel and Alaskan tuna are great choices.
