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:

  1. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 2 cups of water

  2. Soak a washcloth in the solution

  3. 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.
