Frequently Asked Questions

Can itchy skin relief ointments be used on all types of skin?

Waxelene’s organic itchy skin relief ointments may be suitable for use on most skin types, but some people may be more sensitive to certain ingredients. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergic reactions, you should patch test any new products on a small area of your body (such as the inside of your elbow) before committing to full usage. 

If your skin problem is severe, consult with a healthcare provider or dermatologist before using any new itchy skin relief ointment.
Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment is safe to use on both the face and body thanks to its certified organic natural ingredients of beeswax, soy oil, rosemary and Vitamin E.

How do I know if I need an itchy skin relief ointment?

If you are experiencing persistent itching and irritation on your skin, it may be a sign of either an underlying skin condition such as eczema or external irritant such as allergens or insect bites. Dry skin can also be a common cause of itching – the best remedy for this is to use a fragrance-free hypoallergenic moisturizer or ointment on the affected areas after bathing, while your skin still retains some moisture.

As part of your itch relief journey, it may be useful to identify and avoid potential irritants around your home that may trigger itching. This could include certain soaps, detergents, perfumes, or fabrics. Opt for mild, fragrance-free products and wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing made from natural fabrics like cotton, bamboo or linen.

If itching persists or becomes worse after treatment, you should consult with a healthcare provider or dermatologist to determine the cause of your symptoms and whether an itchy skin relief ointment is appropriate for your condition.

While Waxelene can help provide relief for itchy skin and uncomfortable skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, it is best to discuss treatment options with a medical professional if you believe you have a diagnosable condition or are experiencing a flare-up of an existing condition.

How can I relieve itchy skin?

A quick way to achieve relief from itchy skin is by applying a cool, wet compress or ice pack to the affected area. As a follow-up, we suggest massaging a thin layer of Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment or Calming Ointment over the affected area to lock in moisture and help to soothe any particularly sore dry areas. 

Other solutions to relieve itchy skin include:

  • Using fragrance-free and gentle skincare and laundry products
  • Avoiding very hot showers or baths which strip the skin’s natural protective oils
  • Using a humidifier in your home to maintain a stable level of humidity
  • Adding oatmeal to a warm bath as a natural soothing treatment
  • Applying anti-itch creams or lotions. 

It’s important when purchasing anti-itch products to check the ingredients, as some cooling products may contain menthols or alcohol that can irritate damaged skin even further. As an effective ointment for itchy skin, Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment contains only four natural ingredients, all organically sourced and FDA approved – so you know exactly what’s going on and into your skin.

Is cradle cap a form of eczema?

No, cradle cap is not related to eczema. Cradle cap is also not contagious. 

While eczema is also a common skin irritation in babies, it should be treated differently. Visit our Complete Guide to Baby Skin Issues for further information on how to use Waxelene to treat and soothe eczema in babies.

When should I see a doctor for itchy skin?

You should see a doctor for itchy skin if it persists for more than a few weeks, is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or fatigue, if your skin has broken or if you have a rash or bumps on your skin. Some conditions may be best managed with a course of medication or a prescribed topical cream or ointment – and many of these will work in combination with our Multi-Purpose Ointment to assist with absorption of the active ingredients.
