   Neem and Blisters
 

A compound called sodium nimbinate found in neem leaves has been shown to provide significant relief to inflamed tissue. Other compounds such as nimbin, nimbinin and nimbidol are comparable to cortisone acetate in reducing inflammation.

Application of a neem-based cream or lotion will stop the itching and inflammation of rashes and blisters. Many people use a Neem cream or lotion after they have compleated a course of prescription medication to further heal and sooth the skin and to boost the skins natural healing abilities.

Blisters
A blister is a bubble of fluid under the skin that is caused by a skin reaction to irritation, injury, allergy, disease, infection or medication. The fluid inside a blister is called serum, a clear, watery liquid that leaks from neighboring tissues. If the blister is left unopened, the serum can provide natural protection for the skin beneath it. Small blisters are known as vesicles, while those larger than half an inch are called bullae. A blood blister is filled with blood, rather than clear fluid.

Some causes of blisters are as follows:

Irritation - Blisters can be caused by physical factors that irritate the skin, such as: friction (rubbing the skin), irritating chemicals, or extreme cold or heat.

For example, blisters on the feet can result from shoes that are either generally too tight or rub on the skin in one particular area.

Contact dermatitis, can be due to irritant which is a localized skin reaction to some type of chemical irritant.

Extreme temperatures - intense cold can trigger frostbite, which often produces blisters once the affected skin is rewarmed.

Burns - even sunburn, can produce blistering.

Allergies - Allergic contact dermatitis, a form of dermatitis or eczema, is caused by an allergy to a chemical. A common example is contact with certain plants such as poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac.

Infections - Infections that cause blisters include:

Bullous impetigo an infection of the skin caused by staphylococci (staph) bacteria.

Viral infections of the lips and genital area due to the herpes simplex virus (types 1 and 2).

Chickenpox and shingles are caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV)

Coxsackievirus infections which are more common in childhood.

Skin diseases - Numerous skin diseases cause blisters, including erythema multiforme (inflammation of the skin commonly caused by a reaction to a medication or infection), and a group of skin conditions that includes dermatitis, herpetiformis, pemphigoid and pemphigus, thought to result from an immune response directed at one's own skin (also called autoimmune disease).
