It seems to be the popularity among conventional doctors to treat skin conditions and diseases with medications that either doesn’t work or that have harmful or irritating side effects.  There is no point in treating a skin condition with cortisone only to have the lingering side effects of cortisone within your body.  
There are many natural alternatives when it comes to your skin and treating it for burns, eczema, acne, sunburn, minor wounds, or other skin conditions.  Consider the following alternatives to keep your skin healthy naturally and without the use of harmful medications:

•    Aloe Vera is a natural plant that has healing properties that have been known about for many years and are often overlooked.   Aloe Vera can be found as a gel form or you can purchase an Aloe Vera plant and break a leaf off the plant as you need it.  If you are treating a skin disorder you will want to apply the Aloe Vera at least three times per day.  If you are treating a wound you should liberally apply Aloe Vera and it can be used for as long as needed.  Aloe Vera is a wonderful, natural way to heal skin conditions without any other side affects.
•    Emu oil has been used for many years to treat pain and skin problems.  Emu oil is very effective in the treatment of skin conditions since it has traces of three of the essential fatty acids:  Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9.  The oil can be used all over your body for many skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, shingles, rosacea, skin irritations, and dry skin.
•    Red clover.   Red clover is very effective against skin conditions that are caused by heat and dryness, such as allergic dermatitis and eczema.
•    Copaiba. This natural resin is useful in the treatment of skin conditions such as eczema.
•    Neem.  This plant is very similar to Aloe Vera and is just as beneficial in treating all kinds of skin disorders.
