Treating dermatitis with black tea compresses

The German Society for Allergy and Asthma has announced that black tea compresses can help relieve itching in patients suffering from atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema.

The German Society explained that black tea contains anti-inflammatory substances that help restore water balance in the skin, which means it can assist in the treatment of atopic dermatitis when used along with cortisone ointments and tablets.

How to prepare black tea compresses?

According to the German Society, all you have to do is soak a bag of black tea in hot water for 10 minutes before allowing it to cool, then dip a clean cloth in the tea and place it on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, finally, dry your skin and apply a skincare cream.

Atopic dermatitis is a type of skin infection that causes itching, redness and swelling on the surface of the skin, as well as fluids leaking from the inflamed area.

Inflammation associated with atopic dermatitis usually begins in childhood and its severity changes with age.

Even though its causes are still unknown, it is believed to be related to genes, immune system imbalances, exposure to environmental factors, or perhaps problems with skin permeability.
