Treating Rashes At Home: 13 Home Remedies

Apple Cider Vinegar 

Vinegar made from apples has been used for millennia to treat various conditions, including those affecting the skin. In 2018, researchers looked at the effects of apple cider vinegar on three common inflammatory-causing bacteria: E. coli, S. aureus, and C. albicans. Scientists were able to significantly reduce levels of inflammation-causing cytokines by using apple cider vinegar on cell cultures in the lab. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar has antibacterial characteristics that have been well-documented. Its acetic acid content makes it helpful in combating candida, a kind of yeast commonly associated with the development of rash.

Apple cider vinegar may be used directly or diluted onto rash-affected skin a few times a week to alleviate irritation and itchiness. However, it should not be used by those with open sores or wounds. Always check the ingredients before using. Vinegar may be found in stores as single-type bottles and as blends of several types of vinegar. For an antibacterial boost, choose apple cider vinegar with “the mother,” a hazy brownish blob at the bottom of the bottle.
