A rash is an abnormal change in skin color or texture, usually an area of swollen or irritated skin. Most rashes are itchy, painful, and red or pink in color. There are many types of rashes that can be caused by a number of triggers and is usually a symptom of a different type of medical problem or disease. While some rashes can develop right away and clear up quickly, other rashes are chronic and need long-term treatment. Some of the more common rashes include eczema, contact dermatitis, rosacea, and lichen planus.
As most rashes are classified as an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks its own tissues, there is often no cure for chronic rashes. Rashes caused by irritants are often cured by over-the-counter medications or prescribed medications depending on the severity of the rash or of the disease. Although there is no cure for chronic rashes, there are a number of ways to manage them such as ointments, moisturizers, and medicated soaps, lotions, and shampoos. Alternative methods for more serious conditions include phototherapy, antihistamines, and retinoid medications.
As a most medications for chronic rashes only provide short-term relief and can often have harmful side effects, halotherapy, more commonly known as salt therapy provides an all-natural alternative or supplemental treatment for those who suffer from itchy, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful rashes. As the salt particles are absorbed by the skin, its antibacterial properties cleanse the skin by removing the oil and bacteria that may cause skin irritations. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties also found in salt help provide much-needed relief to dry, itchy, scaly skin. As salt is also inhaled into the body through the respiratory system, it strengthens the immune system enabling the body to fight against triggers that can cause flare-ups.
Salt therapy provides the best results for skin conditions and rashes with consistent sessions. Results may vary depending on the regularity of sessions and the severity of the skin condition.
