Soaking in an oatmeal bath to moisturize the skin of an eczema suffering baby may seem like a crazy idea but oatmeal baths are a time-proven, highly effective, and inexpensive homemade treatment that has shown it relieves the urge to itch and soothes dry irritated skin. Dermatologists often recommended oatmeal baths not only for treating mild, moderate to severe eczema symptoms but also to help treat rosacea, diaper rash, poison ivy, sunburn, and seasonally dry skin. Follow these instructions on how to prepare an oatmeal bath for soft, healthy skin results:
Don’t go to the breakfast cereal aisle of the grocery store looking for oatmeal to use in a bath for treating skin sensitivity issues, you need to use a finely ground, powder version called colloidal oatmeal. The finely ground colloidal oatmeal can be suspended in water and binds to the skin and forms a protective barrier that helps hold moisture in and reduce inflammation. Typically sold in drug stores, colloidal oatmeal is frequently used as the active ingredient in over the counter skin cleansers, moisturizers, buffers, as well as a soothing and protective anti-inflammatory agent.
It is not uncommon for people suffering from eczema to also have food allergies including wheat and gluten allergies. Don’t worry oats are considered naturally gluten-free grain and gluten cannot be absorbed through the skin.
As stated earlier there is no gluten in oatmeal but it is possible to have contact dermatitis or an allergic skin rash to a colloidal oatmeal bath. If you believe you are having an allergic reaction stop taking oatmeal baths and consult your physician if the symptoms persist.
