In the summer, sweat dermatitis could appear more easily: here are the natural remedies to treat it and get rid of it!

Sweat dermatitis is skin inflammation caused by several factors that cause the skin to itch. This, in turn, can cause various consequences such as burning, redness, peeling, dryness and swelling. The problem can arise due to excessive sweating or strong exposure to sunlight and, to avoid peeling and drying the skin, it is essential to resist the itch by resorting to small measures to alleviate and cure the problem .

Before resorting to a doctor who specializes in dermatology, we can try to solve the problem with do-it-yourself treatments using natural remedies. Let’s find out what they are!

Sweat dermatitis: natural remedies

Chamomile. Chamomile has a soothing and refreshing effect, for this reason it can be useful to use compresses and help relieve pain.

Rice starch. Rice starch is the most used remedy especially for children. In fact, the latter are more likely to contract the problem due to their delicate and sensitive skin. Rice starch soothes redness and makes the skin soft and dry (it is also very useful when taking a bath )

Sage. An infusion of sage is all that is needed to relieve the symptoms of the problem: gauze soaked in the infusion should be applied to the affected area.

-Other precautions? Drink at least two liters of water a day and possibly also take a fruit juice. Opt for a natural soap and avoid products that are too aggressive for the skin; absolutely do not touch the blisters otherwise the problem could get worse. Finally, avoid in any way alcoholic drinks and foods full of fat and spicy spices. It is also important to carefully choose the right clothing : yes with natural fibers, transparent and light colors.
