Natural Cures and Remedies for Eye Issues
Horseradish is made from the root of a plant that is so ubiquitous its origins have been lost. It is quite pungent and has the power to make the eyes water and the mouth burn.
Apply a small amount of calendula ointment directly to the stye until the symptoms disappear completely. Use a cotton bud for precise application and make sure the ointment does not get into the eye. For precautions see page 114. Adults and children over 2 years old: apply 3-5 times a day.

Due to the severity of bouts of cough, bleeding can occur into the eyes, from the nose, the lung, and , in rare cases, into the brain, resulting in convulsions. In many young children, lung complications such as collapse of a part of the lung are common because of the thick sticky nature of the secretions blocking the passage of air to a part of the lung. Secondary infection may result in pneumonia. They may be convulsions, and, in rare cases, inflammation of the brain.

Skin rash can be a reaction to heat, cosmetics or contact with plants and many other substances. You should see a health professional for a proper diagnosis. It is important to get the right diagnosis as many skin problems may look the same to the untrained eye: for instance, some forms of eczema look like fungal infections or heat rash, and vice versa. Because treatment will depend on the under lying cause, the measures below are of a rather general nature: they calm down the inflammation and stimulate the natural healing processes.
