Corn Starch: A Natural Remedy for Allergies & Infections

Corn Starch: A Natural Remedy for Allergies & Infections

Corn starch is primarily a remnant carbohydrate derived from the endosperm of corn. It is a white powdery substance that holds its pre-eminence in worldwide cuisines, household, and industrial chores.  It acts as the quintessential thickening agent for making the sauces, gravies, glazes, soups, casseroles, pies and other desserts. Corn starch powder, a corn derivative contains no proteins & exclusively offers carbohydrate contents, which invariably classifies it into a gluten-free product. It also serves as an excellent gluten-free alternative to flour thickeners in various recipes.

The odorless starch powder escorts many salutary benefits and underpins the domestic errands in multiple ways.  Corn starch is a highly versatile & resourceful product that helps in the treatment & prevention of frequently contacted allergies:

Skin Irritation:

Corn starch can be effectively used as a DIY soother for various kinds of skin irritations including sunburn & skin allergies. All you need to do is to form a paste by combining three tablespoons of corn starch with cold water. The paste should be consistent to the likes of the peanut butter. Apply evenly to the affected area using a gauze pod or cotton ball and let it dry. Ideally, it should be applied before going to the bed so as to allow enough time to work in.

Athlete’s Food:

Athlete’s food is a smelly podiatric condition caused by fungus growing in the outer layer of the skin of the foot. Here in the case, corn starch with the moisture absorbing prowess offers a great preventive remedy. You can sprinkle your feet with the corn starch powder to keep them dry & prevent fungus from taking root.

Natural Deodorant:

With the incredible capacity to hold moisture in tandem with its lack of scent, corn starch emerges as an all-natural deodorant. Make a paste by mixing three tablespoons of organic corn starch with four tablespoons of baking soda & five tablespoons of coconut oil & heating the blend to form a smooth paste. The addition of few drops of tea tree oil can lend the requisite aroma if required to the formed mixture. Work the ingredients & transfer them to a jar for safe storage & recurring usage.

Bug Bites:

Bug bites can become more aggravated & itchy when exposed to dampness, oil & bacteria. A paste made of corn starch & cold water can duly minimize itchiness by keeping the bite clean & dry.

Blisters & Sores:

Blisters and sores often secrete small amounts of fluid that generates the possibility of contacting bacteria & may even lead to an infection.  A small amount of cornstarch powder can be applied over the wounds to keep it dry, clean & free from probable infections.
