Dilute the Dilemma
The most important message I can give you is the following.
“Dilute the dilemma”
This means when you see a rash or almost any acute skin injury you must soak it.
Use the following formula:
Dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 2 cups of water
Soak a washcloth in the solution
Apply to the affected areas for 30 minutes three times a day
For more widespread severe rashes, dissolve 2 cups of baking soda in a tub of warm water and soak as much as needed (1 hour, 2-3 times a day). Most eruptions will improve within 7-10 days. Never use topical antibiotics like neomycin or triple antibiotic salves.
