I have been suffering from skin allergy for last 10-12 years. I get this problem in summers usually when I go out in the sun. I have tried everything from Ayurvedic, allopathic, homeopathic and seen the best doctors. Can u help.

Always use a sunscreen lotion 20 minutes before you step out in the sun to avoid skin tanning.

  1. In summers especially keep yourself well hydrated with water or lemon juice with a dash of salt as the vitamin C and salts lost in perspiration will be gained by this.
  2. Chewing sugarcane pieces in summer will also help in skin allergies.
  3. To make the skin healthier and less itchy, mash papaya and apply over the affected area.
  4. Also the juice extracted from fresh holy basil leaves when applied, helps in decreasing the rash and itch on the skin. This is a very effective treatment for skin allergy.
  5. If you experience burning sensation, then applying sandalwood paste will act as coolant on the skin.
  6. Application of aloe vera gel on the allergic skin will also be beneficial.

There can be a variety of underlying causes for skin conditions, and often they can be traced to the digestive system (food choices, or digestive inefficiencies) coupled with the body's inability to eliminate well. The sun may trigger a hypersensitivity reaction, so palliative therapies such as fish oil, nettles, Vitamin C and quercetin may decrease the inflammatory reaction. You may also consider some sort of supervised fast or cleanse with increased emphasis on eliminations during the times when your symptoms tend to be most severe. There may also be a mental/emotional component, triggered 10-12 years ago when your symptoms first appeared. Without knowing your history, lifestyle characteristics, lab results, skin appearance, previous therapies, etc. it's not possible to give specific recommendations.

Naturopathic physicians treat the cause, and without knowing about "you", this type of analysis isn't possible. If this condition is interfering with your enjoyment of life during the summer, find a trained health care professional with whom you can develop a long term relationship. For each year you've had a condition, it typically takes at least one month of naturopathic treatment.
