No need to pay the price for the oatmeal bath packets at the pharmacy. You can make your own easily! Works great for eczema, psoriasis, poison ivy, chicken pox, etc.

Ingredients

1
old sock, or nylon knee high
1
rubberband
1 c
oatmeal
1 c
baking soda
2 tsp
coconut oil or olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the oatmeal in the sock/nylon. Fit the opening of the sock over the faucet of your bathtub. Secure with a rubber band. Run a warm bath through the oameal in the sock, occasionally squeezing the sock to release as much of the oatmeal starch as possible into your bath water. While water is running, add the other ingredients. Soak for 30 min.

So glad you got some relief! I totally relate to the suffering brought on by out of control eczema. It has waxed and waned my entire life, sometimes practically disappearing altogether for months or even years and sometimes SO bad that it's completely miserable. In those cases ANY relief is welcome and I'm glad this gave you some!

I have a very bad eczema. When I was little nothing worked. I was in multiple research studies and nothing seemed to help. It covered my entire body and I was itching in every childhood picture. My bed was always bloody. It finally went away when I was a little bit older after some amazing medicine. It has recently come back with a nasty vengeance. I haven't slept for more than a couple hours a night for weeks. This seriously helped so much. I actually used cold water for the bath, which sounds awful, but it was so soothing. I lathered up with vaseline and Eucerin afterwords. Thank you for this recipe, it truly was a life saver! :)

Tried this last night and it worked wonders for my scalp psoriasis. I'll be using it again. Just be sure if you have a shower/bath combo that you're careful when you next step into the shower--the oil makes the tub surface slippery.
