  • When bathing, use pH balanced cleanser to reduce over drying. You can find pH balanced soaps and cleansers at your local drugstore. Rash or no rash - you should always use a pH balanced cleanser.
  • Boost the immune system and its ability of fight off allergens that cause common types of rashes. Consider taking over-the-counter probiotics.
  • Consider taking cool baths in the morning and at night before going to bed - this might help to help calm the area. Also, apply a cool compress treatment (a wash cloth soaked in ice water) several times a day. This feels wonderful and really helps stop the rash itch.
  • If possible, try to keep the affected area uncovered -- especially in the warm summer months, as clothing can agitated the area and keep it too moist which can breed more bacteria.
  • Over the counter rash treatment creams like Calamine® or a 1% cortisone cream can be found at your local drug store and may provide temporary rash relief.
  • Lastly, consider trying the Itch Dr. Homeopathic Cream. If you decide to try it, please write back and let us know how it worked for you.

Remember, you shouldn't diagnose yourself by just looking at pictures of rashes - especially if you are experiencing other symptoms like fever or headaches. When doubt have your physician check it out.
