If you have heard of dermatitis, you might have wondered if this was a new rock band or dance, but the truth is dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin and it’s anything but amusing. There are different types of dermatitis, such as seborrheic dermatitis and contact dermatitis, but basically, they are all skin inflammations that cause itching, burning, swelling, and redness. Severe dermatitis can even cause blisters, scaling, and crusting of the skin.

Although dermatitis is not fully understood, doctors believe some of the typical causes are irritants, allergic reactions, nutritional deficiencies, environmental condition, and genetics. Those with very dry or thin skin tend to be more susceptible to developing dermatitis.

There are numerous natural remedies for dealing with dermatitis. Not everyone’s body is the same and every method does not work for everyone. If you don’t get relief with one method, try another. Be sure to give these methods time to work, however.

We pick out 12 of the absolute best ways to deal with dermatitis that won’t cost you a fortune and won’t make you go crazy trying to find some obscure ingredient. Everything here is inexpensive, easy to find, and has been used successfully by many people.


1. Virgin Coconut Oil

This is the most commonly used oil that works with all types of dermatitis due to its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and moisturizing properties. Coconut oil has been used successfully to reduce the scaling, redness, and itching within just a few days! Warm some virgin coconut oil and apply it to the affected areas. Use this after each bath and every night before bedtime for best results.


2. Jojoba Oil

Although coconut oil is simply a miracle for most people, it doesn’t work in every case. If coconut oil has not worked for you, try jojoba oil. It’s more of a liquid wax than an oil, but it penetrates the skin very deeply, making it very effective for many people. The structure of jojoba oil is almost identical to the oils that our body naturally makes for our skin, so it can leave your skin very soft and moisturized. You can apply jojoba oil directly to the affected areas with your hands, massaging it in until it is at least 50 percent absorbed. This “oil” is very rich and a little bit goes a long way. Apply two or three times each day until you get the desired results.


3. Vitamin E Oil

This is one of the most popular ways to treat dermatitis. Vitamin E oil provides relief from itching due to its anti-inflammatory compounds and it encourages healing. Apply vitamin E oil to the affected areas, especially before going to bed and after showering. You can also take vitamin E supplements and eat foods rich in vitamin E, such as sunflower seeds, peanut butter, and wheat germ oil, to fight dermatitis from the inside out.
