Slicing the leaf of the Aloe Vera plant will expose the watery jelly inside. Using your finger, scrape out the jelly, and gently apply the gel to the affected area several times a day. It will help cool and calm the rash. There are creams, gels, lotions and sprays that contain Aloe Vera if the actual plant is not available.
Fish oil capsules is another home remedy. The Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties. This is taken orally, and very little, about 3 grams a day, is needed to get the desired effect.
Bath treatments with Epson salts and oatmeal are another option.
Wheat germ oil and castor oil in equal parts applied to the affected area.
A tea made with marigold blossoms is also suggested for those who want to use only an herbal, non-medicinal remedy.
