Out of all the well-known Impetigo remedies that are available, there are 3 that I feel stand out from all the rest and are proven to be the most effective. These home remedies are completely natural, safe and really work. Try them out.
1) Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-infection oil. It’s been used for years amongst many conditions, but has been known to specifically work for an Impetigo rash. When applied to the skin, it penetrates deep into the layers of the skin with its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, analgesic (pain killing), and cicatrizant (wound healing) qualities.
Tea Tree Oil also strengthens the body’s immune system, which is often weakened by illness, stress, and even antibiotics and other drugs. The stronger your immune system, the better the chances you will be able to fight off Impetigo.
Out of all the Impetigo remedies, this one is popular because you can use it in a variety of ways.
- First, you can apply it directly onto the infected skin rash.
- Second, you can try to add it to a bath or mix it with water, and then dab it onto the infected rash.
- And finally, you can also consume the oil as an added benefit for your immune system.
2) Colloidal Silver
Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic that has been used before prescription antibiotics were created. Colloidal Silver supports the natural defence system of the body and is also very alkaline. It is still a very powerful and effective antibiotic, without the harmful side affects that prescription antibiotics carry. It also has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, as well as can be used externally or externally. You can apply it directly onto the Impetigo blisters or apply it to water and drink it. You require no more than 1-3 drops per day.
When you use Colloidal Silver, it will kill off bacteria in the body. This has been one of the most popular Impetigo remedies because Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection, and an antibiotic is generally needed to clear it up. I recommend taking probiotics with any antibiotic as well, to restore the good bacteria that you will be killing off.
3) Coconut Oil
The antiseptic fatty acids in Coconut Oil help to prevent and heal bacterial or fungal infections on the skin when consumed or when applied directly onto the skin. Coconut Oil absorbs easily into the skin and and has an immediate antimicrobial affect. When applying Coconut Oil, the Impetigo blisters will be moisturized and begin to scab over faster. Not only that, but Coconut Oil is useful for general skin care and will make the skin smoother than it originally was.
Many people worry about potential scarring from appearing with Impetigo. When you use Coconut Oil, you prevent the chances of that happening. It keeps the skin lubricated and moisturized, so that the skin doesn’t dry out too much and result in scars.
You can purchase all of these Impetigo remedies at your local health foods store and they are relatively inexpensive. Make sure you consult with your doctor before using anything.
Out of all the natural Impetigo remedies that I’ve come across, I can confidently say that these three are by far the most popular and effective. By applying all three of these, you should notice difference in your Impetigo rash within days.
