If you’ve developed rashes, or red, pimply, or puffy itchy
spots on both of your wrists, you may have one of a few
different disorders. Rashes that occur on both wrists are
signs of particular issues that are different than those that
occur on just one wrist, such as
shingles, so it is important to
be aware of where your symptoms are showing up.

Common Causes of Rash on Both Wrists

Contact dermatitis can cause rashes on both of your wrists.
Common causes of contact dermatitis are chemicals in hair
products, soaps, detergents, bleaches and gardening
supplies
. (Read more about natural remedies for contact
dermatitis.)

Rashes on both wrists could be a sign of
"Dyshidrotic
Eczema
". A 2009 study by the University of Edinburgh found
that this skin disorder is genetic but can be exacerbated by
environmental factors like pet fur and pollen. The oily barrier
between your skin and the air is lessened in people whose
genes predispose them to eczema. The University of Dundee
proved in a 2006 study that without this barrier, the air and
all the things floating around in it dry out the skin, leaving it
itchy and irritated. This disorder typically shows itself on both
hands, wrists, and sometimes on the feet.


Sensitivity to nickel in your diet is a common cause of allergic
contact dermatitis and eczema, according to a 2009 study
from Ohio State University. Soy beans are particularly high in
nickel so you should avoid eating soy products if you have
rashes.


Scabies is another skin problem that manifests itself through
rashes. Scabies is, in fact, the presence of small mites on the
skin and is highly contagious. The mites burrow under the
skin, causing redness, inflammation, and irritation.

Scabies is most common in dark, warm places on the body but
can often be seen on both wrists. According to a clinical study
by the Japanese Department of Dermatology, the source of
scabies can be unknown, though transmission happens
through human contact and most frequently within
households and hospitals. Homes for the elderly are cited as a
major source of the infestation and spreading of scabies and
the rashes that it causes.  (Read more about
natural cures for
scabies.)

Lupus can also cause rash on both wrists. According to a
study by eHealthMe published in 2012, Lupus, an autoimmune
disorder, is also likely to cause skin rashes on both hands and
wrists.

Lupus irritations are puffy and accompanied by various other
symptoms. The study states that among those with Lupus
who suffer from hand rashes, 90% are women and the
majority are in their forties. (Read more about
diet
recommendations for lupus.)

There are no known cures for eczema or Lupus, but
regardless of the cause of rashes on both wrists, there are
natural ways to soothe and cool irritated, itchy skin. Here are
the top 10 natural remedies for rashes that occur on both
wrists:


























1.        
Oatmeal Soothes Rashes– It’s not just for breakfast!
Dermatologist Lawrence Charles Parish, MD of Thomas
Jefferson University in Philadelphia states that oatmeal has
anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties. Soak hands in a
bath of warm water and ground oats and experience a
soothing, relaxing rest from irritation.

2.        
Tea Tree Oil for Scabies Rashes– For wrist rash caused
by scabies, tea tree oil has been proven to provide relief.
According to the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and
Hygiene (2000), 5% tea tree oil killed off the mites at a faster
rate than other anti-parasite drugs.  Tea tree oil’s anti-
bacterial and anti-fungal properties were integral in clearing
up the rash. Apply this fragrant oil to heal up those hands!

3.        
Aloe Is a Good General Cure for Rashes– Aloe is
another plant based, topically applied remedy for itchy rashes.
The juicy gel of the succulant is anti-microbial and a natural
pesticide, healing rashes with various causes.

Phytotherapy Research Journal stated in their October 2009
issue that aloe was as effective as the common conventional
drugs used to cure rashes, without any of the side effects.
Whether you snap a leaf off a plant or buy aloe commercially,
enjoy its cooling effects on you hands.

4.        
Neem Oil Disinfects Rashes– Neem is an evergreen tree
native to India. The vegetable oil extracted from its fruits and
seeds are a safe disinfectant for rashes. Dr. Charles at the
Medical and Cancer Research and Treatment Center in India
reported that a study of 814 people with rashes due to
scabies were completed healed of the condition within 3-5
days while using a scrub bath and paste application of neem
oil daily (1991). Apply neem oil directly to a rash to reduce
swelling and itching.

5.        
Clove Oil Kills Scabies Rash– Dr. Cielo Pasay from
Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia
conducted a study on the effectiveness of clove oil in killing
off scabies and providing relief for skin rashes (2010).

Researchers found that the mites had been eradicated within
15 minutes of topical application of the oil. Clove’s natural
antimicrobial and antioxidant properties prove a safe and
natural remedy for not just the mites but the rash that
accompanies them. And it smells good!

6.        
Omega-3 Oils Reduce Rash Swelling– Omega-3 oils are
found in fish, nuts, beans, seeds, and spinach. These ‘good
fats’ have proved to reduce swelling and irritation caused by
skin rashes.

According to the British Journal of Dermatology (Volume
158), eczema cleared up by 23% in subjects who took the
supplement form of the oil for eight weeks. Serve up a
healthy salmon and salad dinner and give those itchy hands a
break!
7.        
Probiotics Relieve Allergy Symptoms, Including Rash
Probiotics are bacteria and microorganisms that can be
introduced to the body to produce beneficial effects.
Probiotics that may reduce allergy symptoms, such as a rash,
were used by Barry W. Ritz, PhD in a study reported in the
Natural Medicine Journal (2011). The study proved that
probiotics can reduce the incident of eczema in children by
50%. Good news for all the grumpy babies out there with
itchy hands. Probiotics are easily found in yogurts containing
‘live active cultures’.

8.        
Chinese Herbs Relieve Eczema – A concoction of five
Chinese herbs commonly used to treat many illnesses has
been shown by a University of Hong Kong study (2008) to
improve the quality of life and reduce the need for topical
treatments for people suffering from skin rashes. The study
also showed the reduction of proteins in the blood
responsible for inflammation due to eczema in those patients
who consumed the herbs. Make a tea or take commerically
available capsules for some rash relief.

9.        
Vitamin E Fights Rash– Applied topically or taken as a
supplement by mouth, Vitamin E has been shown by the
University of Maryland Medical Center (2009) to contain
antioxidants especially active within the skin tissue. The
vitamin destroys free radicals in the body, reducing skin
damage and fighting against the effects of rash. Eating foods
high in Vitamin E, such as eggs, avocados, and nuts, is the
most delicious way to calm angry skin.

10.        
Vitamin B12 Reduces Rashes– The British Journal of
Dermatology (2004) studied the effects of B12 on sufferers
of skin rash. The presence of the rash in all of the 41
participants was significantly reduced when B12 was used.

While eating meat, seafood, and cheese will boost your intake
of B12, a topical cream application has been proven to reduce
irritation and inflammation associated with rashes. So slather
it on and soothe yourself!
