Orlando, FL — April 27, 2016 — One of the most common illnesses that affects children is chickenpox. A majority of people only get chickenpox once in their lifetime. There are medications available but there are also natural alternatives believed to ease symptoms of the condition.
Turmeric is one of the home remedies for chicken pox. This illness is characterized by red spots or itchy rash all over the body. It is caused by the Varicella zoster virus and can spread easily through an airborne droplet from an infected person.
Chickenpox can be spread even if the symptoms are not yet visible. The first symptoms include sore throat, headache, and fever. Rash typically appears a day or two after the appearance of the first symptoms.
According to experts, spots caused by chicken pox often go through different stages. It can even take ten days for the blisters to create the crust. In most cases, home remedies are used to treat the condition. Treatment means reducing the irritation and clearing the scars.
Some of the home remedies are baking soda, honey, oat meal, green peas, neem, brown vinegar, sandal wood oil, vitamin E oil, herbal tea, ginger, and calamine lotion.
It is also important that sufferers avoid spicy and oily food. They should also get some rest. One of the most popular natural remedies is turmeric.
Turmeric is probably one of the oldest medicinal spices that is still widely used nowadays. This spice is popular in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. It is believed to offer a range of health benefits and fight a myriad of medical conditions.
“The healing effects of turmeric are believed to come from its phytochemical called curcumin,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Curcumin is turmeric’s active ingredient. It contains healing substances such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Turmeric is also a popular natural remedy against a variety of conditions.
The antiseptic and antibacterial properties of turmeric are believed to help ease the symptoms of chicken pox. Turmeric powder should also be combined with warm water and applied on the affected areas. This is believed to help reduce itching as well as improve healing.
The turmeric paste is believed to help remove the scars caused by the condition. It is also thought to help ease other symptoms.
Today, turmeric is popularly used through curcumin supplementation. The most recommended curcumin supplements contain a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient called BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
