Home remedies for skin infection

Try the following simple home remedies to deal with the skin infection which is caused due to a pimple or acne:

  • Apply heat compress, take steam or take hot showers. This will help to increase blood circulation in the area. It would also improve the body's ability to fight infection as it increases the flow of white blood cells in that area.
  • With proper heat treatment an infection would often drain on its own, do not squeeze the area or try to drain it if it is still hard or small.
  • Apply calamine lotion over the infection as this will help to dry the skin faster and thereby speed up the recovery.
  • Keep your skin clean and dry, avoid touching the infection often as this can cause the infection to spread.

If the infection is too severe or gets worst then seek a medical assistance to successfully heal it.
