The use of cornstarch to relieve itching is a time proven home remedy that has found favor for general use today. Cornstarch in a paste form is very effective for soothing irritated skin and calming the itching often associated with dry, inflamed or irritated skin. A paste would be made by mixing one tablespoon of cornstarch with three tablespoons of water. Apply this mixture to the affected area and allow to air dry. One should however be mindful to never apply this mixture to broken skin or open wounds.
Cornstarch is an anti-inflammatory, very soothing and natural pH acid neutralizer. Often times the inflammatory response of itching and skin irritation is the result of an acidic imbalance on the skin. Some event or situation triggers an immune system response and the body reacts to the site of this attack by rushing anti-bodies through the blood to the location of the skin. What we observe when this happens is a raised reddened patch of skin that often feels itchy and may be slightly warm to the touch. The application of the cornstarch paste helps to restore the alkaline balance to the location of the irritation thus soothing the itching, calming the heat and reducing the body’s natural immune system response.
