Many people swear by oatmeal as a way of relieving itchy, irritated skin. It's thought that adding ground oatmeal to your bathwater can help with this, but if you have a skin rash that's focused on one area, a quick and easy oatmeal paste will help you out.
The key chemical ingredient here is avenanthramides, which are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to helping the swelling go down, oatmeal will also soothe any itching or irritation you have.
