Pityriasis Rosea  

Posted by Sherry Sellers (Sweetwater, Texas) on 04/25/2011

I have had pityriasis for over a year now, it's not as bad as it was for the first 10 months, but they just keep popping up. Sunlight seems to help more than anything I've tried, I've also tried laying under a black light with some luck.

I had a red raised itchy rash. I tried all the stuff dermatologist suggested.none of it worked. I went home and put some 1 teaspoon sea salt in about a cup of really warm water, so the salt dissolves. Then I took a shower right before getting out. I poured the salt water over the rash let that part of my body just air dry and the rash was gone within three days.

I used the same thing for my Seborrheic Dermatitis and it worked wonders!!!!

Just make sure that you dilute pure Sea Salt or Himalayan Rock (pink) Salt with warm distilled Water. If you are living by the Sea so much the better - that Ocean Water is actually the old Folks' medicine for any kind of skin rash :-)

Soap, Hydrogen Peroxide  

Posted by Zagyzebra (Jacksonville, Oregon, Usa) on 05/24/2012

I thought what I had was poison oak, but it wouldn't go away. It was an inexplicable rash that came right up to the outside corner of my eye with little irritating, nearly invisible, itchy bumps. I did a search online, and found someone else who had done cortisone and all sorts of other silly doctor prescribed medicines and then finally tried washing the area with soap, drying it, and then applying hydrogen peroxide. Worked for him. Worked for me. The bumps dried up, my skin got scaly, and then it went away.

Carbicarb remedy which is a solution for many symptoms!! I had painful red itchy hands with pimples after working in the garden and i took 1/4 teaspoon of soda crystals (baking soda and sodium bicarbonate) in a glass of water the trademark is Tricel, made in the Netherlands, and in one hour the symptoms were gone. I also had running nose and the soda crystals dried my nose. My nose sometimes gets blocked and with daily use of soda crystals can return your nose to its normal condition and opened sinuses. Soda crystals does a lot! It helps my mother sleep easily, it alkalises your brain, helps your hypothalamus and help your exhausted adrenal glands to recover.This remedy and advice i got from Ted, he advised me to take daily soda crystals with a lot of water... It is helping my thyroid problem as well as i have hypothyroidism. I hope it will clean my liver too from the fats and clean it like it cleans a dirty plate. Thanx Ted for the great help you give with your advice as always. You are the best website!!! And Ted is the best! What do we do without Ted? What do we do without Earthclinic? We would probably die.. I am telling everyone i know how great Earthclinic is and they are checking your site.

Stinging Nettles and Calamine Lotion

Thought I had Ring worm. NO!

I had skin irritations on my left hand and the irritation look just like Ringworm, the rash was in pink rings! So I thought it was ringworm. Even my elbow developed a perfect ring around the elbow itself. And since I feed stray cats and help or spay them if they need help I thought I may have gotten ring worm from one of the cats. (They didn't seem to have ringworm).

Well the irritation was frustrating (as usual) and I tried products at the pharmacy for Ringworm.

The nice Pharmacist recommended Tinactin.

The spray powder seemed to work best! But this treatment would only seem to help soothe not rid me of the rash. The rash only seemed to become dormant. And then it would return? And there were other new spots?

This only happened to one hand and limb. My right hand and limb was rash free. Then I thought maybe it was something other than Ringworm.

It also itched like crazy and when only Calamine lotion would stop the itching I then realized the rash might be something else and not ringworm. I have Stinging Nettle weed on my property (and I do weed) and I started putting Calamine lotion on the rash and noticed that I could pull little barbs out of my skin! Some of what I pulled out seemed like little wires on my elbow!

I was able to allow the Calamine lotion to dry and then I could pull little barbs out of my skin!

Prid salve for splinters also works. You place this or even Mentholatum or Vaseline on the rash, work it in and the barbs or stingers can be pulled out. I'm nearly free of the ring rash now. But it was not Ringworm.

Sulfur and Fish Oil

I had small, red patches and spots around my eyes that wouldn't go away after 3 or 4 months. I assumed I was reacting to something, developing new allergies perhaps. I've never had eczema. I didn't want to go to a dermatologist, as I assumed I'd be prescribed anti-biotics and/or steroid creams, etc. NO THANKS!

There's a very long story here, but to make it short, I went to a homeopathic doctor who recommended sulphur (small homeopathic tablets--cheap) and fish oil. Never found out what caused the inflammation, but the strange dry, red patches cleared up within 3 days and haven't returned since (over 2 months). Hope this helps someone who was as frustrated as I was! Peace, Isabella

Being a nurse I am often times discouraged with the whole medical model here in the US. I decided to try this websites' homeopathic remedy of turmeric. It was an absolute success story in 4 days use, 2 times/day!

My daughter has had a rash which began on her upper thighs and buttocks, flesh colored, no real pattern, very itchy, for several months. The scratching was driving her crazy at night! She has seen the doctor on 3 separate occasions, expensive prescriptions, oral steroids, cream steroids, antibiotics, all to no avail. The rash has spread to her stomach, arms, chest and scalp. We were at our wits end! This has been going on for about 6 months.

I had some turmeric in my spice cabinet and thought what the heck, it can't hurt. It absolutely healed the entire rash! We mixed 1 tsp in a small glass of water, about 3-4 ounces, twice a day. I was amazed, surprised and thankful for this remedy. It has affirmed my beliefs in homeopathic medicines.

After some investigation but without a real pathology result, I believe the skin infection is MRSA related. This decade has seen an enormous increase in staph aureus and I believe it infiltrated her skin in some way.

You never mentioned how you used the turmeric for your daughter. Did you apply it externally or did she drink it with the water?

EC: Sounds like she drank the concoction.

Underarm Rashes

Lavilin is a good solution if you have underarm rashes. It's an all-natural deodorant that apparently does wonders for sensitive skin. Haven't had a rash in months!

White Vinegar

White Vinegar takes away the itch. Soak a towel in 1/2 white vinegar, 1/2 water and use it as a compress- lay the towel (or rag) over the itchy area. You can press down if you want. I like to squeeze extra on the itchiest parts. A few minutes is all I need for relief. I like to leave some on my skin and let it dry up on its own after I'm done with the compress.

hi, I recently went through chemo, my hair started falling out so I shaved it. Soon after my head started breaking out with a rash. Asked my doctor what to do he prescribed a pill supposed to take care of it, well it did not work. So when I saw this site talking about the vinegar I tried it. Let me tell you the next day it was already clearing up! I was amazed! It did not hurt to try it, and I am glad I did! Thanks for the heads up!
