How to treat eczema with this ingredient in 4 easy steps

Apple cider vinegar is used for centuries to cure various diseases and conditions.

Diluted solution

Mix apple cider vinegar with water in equal parts in a bowl. For hypersensitive skin is recommended to add more water: a quarter cup of vinegar to 3 cups water. You can pour the mixture into a spray bottle and lightly spray over the affected areas, or you can apply directly using a sterile cotton swab. Repeat this process twice a day, preferably in the morning upon waking and before bed.

Solution for oral ingestion

Since eczema is considered an autoimmune disease, a good idea would be to make the most of immunizing properties of apple vinegar. Combine two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with water, mix well and drink the solution obtained twice a day. Optionally, you can add some honey to improve the taste of the drink.

Cream based on apple vinegar

Since eczema can cause excessive skin dry, a very important step in the treatment of these diseases is the proper hydration. The problem is that many topical lotions and creams without a prescription can cause side effects on sensitive skin affected by eczema. The best alternative consists of preparing a natural moisturizer. Mix 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1.5 teaspoons of beeswax and 1.5 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Heat a little oil and beeswax then thoroughly mix the ingredients until you get a smooth paste. The cream obtained can be used for local applications daily.

Baking soda solution

Another oral solution can be obtained by mixing apple cider vinegar with baking soda. Some studies have shown that pH imbalances in the body can lead to dry skin and the appearance of eczema. Mix 125 ml of water in two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a quarter teaspoon of baking soda. Optionally, you can add honey, or you can combine the mixture with herbal teas. Drink the solution daily for a week.
