Chafing

The Natures Healthbox range of chafing products have been made with the finest natural & organic ingredients, and work to provide fast & effective relief from the common areas of chafed Skin.

What is chafing?

Chafing is an abrasive irritation of the skin that commonly occurs between the underarms and inner thighs. Rubbing and sweating are the main causes of chafing, as well as any activity that can cause a prolonged friction between the surfaces of the skin. The subsequent rashes of chafing are often sore, painful and uncomfortable, so although not a serious condition, chafing should be not neglected as the broken skin may be open to infection.

Sometimes, its not always possible to avoid the conditions which cause chafing, and if you are looking for an natural, non-drug alternative to regular pharmaceutical treatments, then there are certainly many to choose from. Calendula oil has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties, which could help to get rid of chafing, while Aromatherapy oils are also thought to help reduce skin inflammation and irritation (Please note: aromatherapy oils must NOT be used directly on the skin unless they are diluted with a carrier oil).

Can chafing heal on its own?

Chafing may heal on its own if the affected area of skin is left exposed to air overnight, while you Sleep. If the condition does not improve, ensure that you take protective measures when participating in sweaty, physical activities.

What's the best home remedy for chafing?

Many herbalists suggest that a home remedy containing either Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter or cornstarch may provide effective relief of chafing, when applied to freshly, pat-dried skin.

How do you treat chafing?

In order to reduce or prevent skin chafing, it is important to lessen the amount of friction to the skin by wearing clothes that are not too tight, and are made of materials that allow the skin to breath. Applying Talcum Powder to areas of your Body that become sweaty during physical activity may also help to control moisture build-up and avert friction of the skin. A regular intake of beta-carotene rich foods, Zinc and Vitamins A + C provide the skin with protective Antioxidants, which may make the skin more resilient to chafing in the future.
