Skin sores can come in many shapes, sizes, textures, etc. and you just have to take them as they come. Some aren’t serious at all, and others can last for months on end. If you have a skin sore you have been trying to heal at home, there are a few creative techniques you may want to try. These won’t cost a lot of money do test, and you don’t have to see a critical care nurse to get the job done. Follow the suggestions below, and your skin may heal in no time.
Clear Fingernail Polish
Applying clear fingernail polish to your skin will deprive it of oxygen, and some skin conditions thrive on that to grow. You might have to deal with shiny, leathery skin for a bit, but you will be healing yourself along the way. This is kind of like putting a lid on a candle to put out the flames. Instead of a lid, you’re using a sealant. The polish will come off over time, so all you have to do is wait for it to work.
Emu oil can be found in just about any health food store or pharmacy, and it can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. It contains special nutrients that plump and soften the skin from multiple layers. A friend of mine uses it to treat a recurring rash she gets around her mouth, and I have used it to treat issues with dry skin around my face. If you use this underneath some other kind of skin medicine, it will actually help it absorb better into the lower layers. That’s just something to keep in mind.
I sometimes have skin problems because my skin is too dry. You might want to use some healing lotion to make yours go away. I usually do this for round sores I get on my legs when the humidity in the air is low. The lotion provides just enough moisture for my legs to look good again.
Consider all of those options the next time you have a problem on your skin, and hopefully you’ll find a solution you can count on.
