Contact dermatitis is any rash on the skin that is thought to be caused by contact with chemicals or other allergens. Obviously avoiding chemical cleaners would be very important. I personally used to break out with latex gloves because the synthetic material was against my fingers, and heat was applied when I washed dishes or used hot water in my cleaning solution. (In other words, I was better off with my natural cleaning products and NO gloves!)
We often do not realize that rashes are really do to toxins trying to get out of the body. They will look for the fastest exit, and the skin is the largest organ of detoxification.
Whenever there is any kind of skin rash or sensitivity, I find it clears most rapidly when we focus upon the INNER terrain – detoxification of the body. There are many ways we can detoxify, but basically we need to monitor what goes INTO the body, what goes ON the body, and what comes OUT of the body.
It is important that the organs of elimination be working properly. I have found that focus upon HYDRATING the body and then the SALT FLUSH are the perfect initial steps. Next, it is important to consider a cleanse such as Young Living’s FIVE DAY CLEANSE which includes Digest & Cleanse, Ningxia Red, and Power Meal or Balance Complete.
LAVENDER essential oil can be taken in capsules, beginning with 3 drops 3 times a day and working up to 8 drops 3 times a day. MELROSE or PURIFICATION can also be applied to the bottoms of the feet.
