Banana Skin for the Treatment of a Rash

A friend recently told me to try something rather unusual for eczema: eat a banana and rub the inside of the peeling on the eczema. I tried it, and the results were staggering; I had no itching for six hours after a single application. I don’t know if anyone has ever studied the use of banana skin for the treatment of this rash, but if it helps, why not try it?
