Itching Or Burning Sensations

Dreamstime

Itching and burning sensations can occur when individuals use tea tree oil that has not been diluted well enough. These sensations might start very shortly after applying the oil, although some individuals experience a delayed reaction. If individuals experience painful sensations like burning or itching after putting anything new on their skin, it is a sign they should wash it off. Individuals should remove the oil and try not to scratch their skin too much. If they do scratch and get the oil on their fingertips, they must wash their hands as well. 

Burning and stinging sensations are cause for concern because they indicate the skin is being harmed. If the burning is severe, individuals should get in contact with a doctor right away. However, if the burning is only mild, their best bet is to wash the affected area thoroughly and use at-home remedies for any lingering sensation. Some skin irritation might be treated with certain lotions or ointments. Individuals with sensitive skin are more likely to experience burning or itching as a result of essential oil use.
