Treatments rarely target the causes of skin eruptions, especially medical treatments. These are designed to suppress the symptoms rather than find and so heal the underlying reason for them.
Certainly, it’s not always easy to see causes, especially if you’re not trained to look for them. However, as every being is an individual with personal causes, this article is to help you do some of your own research yourself. And where to find the most effective help if your best efforts fail.
Common Skin Eruptions and Symptoms
These include eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, herpes zoster (shingles), simple herpes, genital herpes, impetigo, acne, scabies, etc. Eruptions can weep, or be dry and flake. They red be red or pale. They can be adversely affected by different temperatures, times of the day or seasons.
Other skin conditions includes cellulitis, warts, vitiligo, urticaria, fungal infections (tinea), cracked skin (although that usually accompanies eczema and psoriasis), ringworm, blisters, dry skin, oily skin, formication, boils and carbuncles, scars and keloids.
These can be on any part of the body or even all over. Symptoms are often intense, itchy and with pain. And they can look unsightly, which is of great concern to most sufferers.
It’s understandable that people seek out any relief from their suffering. However, the common use of suppressive drugs such as steroids, either topically and orally, does have devastating consequences, usually later in life.
Rest assured there are much better and safer options available. Bear in mind, too, that suppressive drugs don’t aim to heal or cure so you may be needing them for life.
Common Causes of Skin Eruptions
It’s important to understand how the body works and what it does to relieve itself of toxins and inner distress.
The skin is always the preferred way of the body to rid itself of toxins. It’s relatively safe. Other ways are with discharges – from any orifice including vomiting and diarrhoea.
See if you can see a correlation between a recent drug or injection and your skin condition. Or with a new carpet, car, house or garden chemical treatment, air freshener, etc.
Take away the cause, and the body doesn’t need to de-tox any longer.
Diet is one of the main causes of skin eruptions of any type. The standard western diet is, for the most part, unhealthy and unsupportive of health in general. This doesn’t just relate to the common consumption of fast food, fried food or processed food, all of which can be devastatingly harmful.
It relates to the high consumption of animal protein and a low consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, with scant attention to home produced meals.
Human physiology is not designed to thrive on high animal protein, which is also invariably high in fat. Humans may be omnivores, but at the herbivore end of the scale, rather than the carnivore end. You can tell this by the structure of our teeth, the length of the colon, the pH of our stomach acid and blood, etc.
Wheat is another trigger for skin eruptions, as well as digestive health.
Immersing your hands in chemicals regularly as can happen with mechanics and cleaners, can be a major cause.
Allergies can be expressed through skin conditions. This can be from food, from an insect bite, from a plant such as poison oak. Allergies are a normal consequence of vaccines.
Natural Solutions For Skin Conditions
You may not be able to completely avoid exposure to all chemicals, as they are very pervasive. But limiting your exposure, where ever you can, can only help.
Adding in flax seeds or chia seeds to your diet addresses the essential fatty acid deficiency from a less than optimum diet.
Adding in plenty of leafy greens (kale, collard, spinach, bok choi, etc) to your diet has a hugely benefical effect on your very basic health requirements. Try to go organic to avoid the pesticides and toxic fertilisers.
Greens contain all the macro minerals, trace elements, protein and vitamins. It’s almost a complete food.
A diet high in fibre keeps your digestive tract humming, with good elimination. And that takes the burden off the skin.
Helpful Topical Creams
Although topical creams are unlikely to cure the problem, they can ease and soothe.
The best one is Calendula. Calendula can effectively replace the need for streoidal creams. Other ones are Sweet Melissa, Tea Tree and Chickweed.
Don’t purchase those in a petro-chemical carrier, for obvious reasons. The carrier should be a nut oil – olive, almond, macadamia, etc, so check the ingredients carefully.
It is possible to make your own with a nut oil, lanolin or bees wax to solidify the cream, and the herbal tincture. You can find details online.
When the causes of skin eruptions is a medical drug or injection, the consequences can be too deep for the average person to cure completely on their own, although the above measures can reduce the intensity and frequency of the problem.
