What is Skin Rash, Itching?
A skin rash is characterized by change in the color or texture of the skin. It is usually accompanied by itching. Dryness and cracks in the skin are also noted in skin rash. The various causes of skin rash include atopic dermatitis, fungal infections, rosacea, psoriasis, heat rash and measles. Itching is medically termed as pruritis. Itching provokes a reflex to scratch. Itching on skin may arise with or without any skin eruptions. The causes behind itching may be skin related or linked with medical disorders. The skin related diseases leading to itching include eczema, psoriasis, scabies, pimples, and urticaria. Medical causes include diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders, uraemia, jaundice, liver diseases and kidney disorders. In addition to these causes, itching can also result from a reaction to certain drugs or an allergic reaction from chemicals or wool. Itching is commonly seen in elderly people and women during pregnancy.

Homeopathic Medicines for Skin Rash and Itching
Sulphur – One of the top grade Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching
Sulphur is one of the top grade Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching. I have successfully treated a large number of cases of skin rash and itching with the use of Sulphur. Along with itching, the person may feel a burning sensation on the skin. This burning sensation worsens with further scratching. People often complain that the itching gets worse in the evening and at night or even from lying on the bed. Sulphur is one of the best Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching where such symptoms are noticed. In fact, cases of skin rash that have not found a cure inspite of local medication for a long time also respond well to this safe and natural Homeopathic medicine, Sulphur.
Psorinum – Most effective among Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching in bend of joints
Natural medicine Psorinum is one of the most wonderful Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching in the bend of joints, for example the hollow of the knee or elbow. In my clinical practice, Homeopathic medicine Psorinum has shown the best results where itching is intolerable and the skin gets raw or may even start to bleed from intense and continuous scratching. So severe is the condition that the person often finds it hard to even sleep. In persons showing these vital signs, Psorinum has proved to be one of the most suitable Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching. Psorinum is also among the most effective Homeopathic medicines for skin ailments that get worse in winters. Along with the symptoms mentioned above, sensitivity to cold air may also be felt in some cases.
Apis Mellifica and Urtica Urens – Top rated Homeopathic medicines for itching
Apis Mellifica and Urtica Urens are excellent Homeopathic medicines for itching from urticaria eruptions. I have seen people recover wonderfully well with these two medicines in many cases of urticaria related itching. Both the medicines are made from natural sources and are therefore, safe and free from side effects. The main symptom to look out for when using Homeopathic medicine Apis Mellifica is itching on the skin with a stinging, burning sensation caused by urticaria. This itching gets worse with heat or in a closed room and it often gets better in the open air or with cold applications. Homeopathic medicine Urtica Urens is also very effective in treating cases of itching from urticaria. The guiding symptom for Urtica Urens use is itching with formication – a sensation resembling that of small insects crawling on or under the skin, or a pricking sensation on the skin from urticaria. Urtica Urens is also one of the best Homeopathic medicines for skin rash and itching from urticaria that reappears every year in the same season.
Graphites and Natrum Mur – One of the best Homeopathic medicines for itching from eczema
Graphites and Natrum Mur are very popular Homeopathic medicines for itching linked with eczema. Homeopathic medicine Graphites is used in cases of eczema with skin eruptions along with sticky, glutinous discharge attended with intense itching. For use of Homeopathic medicine Natrum Mur, the person must show eczema with dry eruptions or rawness of skin due to violent itching. The dry eruptions are mainly located in the bends of limbs, margin of the scalp and behind the ears. A person in need of Homeopathic medicine Natrum Mur may complain of worsening of skin itching with heat, sun exposure or even from taking too much salt.

Homeopathic medicine Arsenic Album is one of the prominent cures for itching from psoriasis. Where the symptoms include psoriatic lesions along with intense itching, Arsenic Album is one of the most suitable Homeopathic medicines for itching to treat the condition.

Petroleum is one of the high grade Homeopathic medicines for itching associated with dry, cracked skin. The symptom to be considered for using Petroleum is dry, rough, cracked skin with marked itching. The cracks are deep and may also bleed. The symptoms get worse in winter.
