14 Natural Ways To Treat Hives At Home

Oatmeal Bath

If you are not allergic to one or more ingredients in oats, oatmeal’s anti-inflammatory qualities can help relieve hives. Ensure the bath water is not too hot before adding up to 1.5 cups of colloidal oatmeal. Overheating might cause hives and render treatment ineffective. A maximum of 15 minutes should be spent soaking in the oatmeal bath. 

When drying off, avoid rubbing your skin with a towel. Colloidal oatmeal has soothing and moisturizing properties for the skin. It can also calm and protect the skin due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. In addition to oatmeal’s health benefits, a warm bath can alleviate stress, which might result in hives in some people.

A health specialist can advise you on how long you should soak in the tub. Remember that the tub may be slick due to the colloidal oats when going in and out. When finished, pat yourself dry with a soft towel rather than rubbing yourself because this might aggravate your sensitive skin even more. Colloidal oatmeal can be purchased in most pharmacies, drugstores, and online. You can also prepare colloidal oatmeal by finely powdering regular oatmeal in a blender or food processor.
