I've heard they work great, although I have never done it for my kids. Sure doesn't seem healthy but I've heard it does wonders for a lot of people.

Sounds really scary to me! My nephew has had great success with coconut oil, Tea tree oil, and Melrose. His is sparked by a dairy intolerance and if he lays of the dairy it clears up.

Amber Bryan

Thats excactly what i did and it worked wonders! Especially cutting out dairy products.

Best to quit it altogether so that it doesn't come back

Irina Barron 3 years

Agreed about quitting but telling a 14 year old. Doesn't listen

Amber Bryan 3 years

No this is diet related and gut realted.

Lesley Thacker

Can also be related to chemical sensitivities right? Such as laundry detergent or other cleaning products.. May not be the root cause but can def be effected by them

Lori Dickson 3 years

Lori Dickson that would enhance it but not the root case. Things will work topically but the eczema itself will continue to come back. Chemical sensitivity is also present due to liver toxicity and over load.

Lesley Thacker 3 years

No. This is crazy just like the people that use bleach enemas for autism.. Eczema is an immune system reaction that can be healed through the gut.

Ashley Mccray

Holy shit! No!

Pour Vinegar (deluted) over the area. It kills the bacteria, itching stops and it begins to heal instantly. Also, drink apple cider vinegar (with mother) in water, helps the gut.

Omg no

yes i have heard of it and for a few reasons other than lepersy

Yes! And I'd do it again! My daughter had eczema so bad when she was little that she kept getting really bad skin infections from digging and scratching. We fought this for years. Finally I tried the bleach bath and she stopped getting infections and it helped clear up her eczema too. I know that most things center in the gut, but the bleach baths helped kill the bacteria she kept spreading on her skin. Had I known about probiotics back then (8 years ago), I probably would have had her on them. But I was desperate and the bleach baths worked like a charm.

That's horrible

No no no and just no

Erica Frye

That is fking LUDICROUS.. My daughter also suffered from horrible eczema and has ASD. NEVER IN A MILLION FKING YEARS WOULD I ADVOCATE BLEACH BATHS .

Ashley Mccray

Do you let your kids swim in chlorine pools? It's not an entire bath full of bleach. It's very diluted.

Amy Naquin
A

I already reported it. This is natural healing not go swim in bleach baths to "cure" eczema .

Ashley Mccray
A

What? Wow.... Why? Like I need info! How can I be natural if I can't even reach out and get info on it!

Alma Vigil
A

Bleach isn't natural, dear.

Ashley Mccray
A

Ok so educate me on why it's bad instead of jumping to report me!!!! Like seriously !! You people mean and not gonna help people who don't know better and looking for info!!! You turning people away!!!

Alma Vigil

actually, a scientist and mole expert said to us 3% ammonia

Christina Rivers 3 years

Ok, so bleach isn't natural. So what? She's asking a question! I've not heard of it, but I wouldn't ever do it! I cannot imagine it would be very soothing!

Shannon Holman 3 years

I've done it with my children for chicken pox, poison ivy and other skin issues. It's the same as a swimming pool and very effective. Just a cap full of Bob concentrated. Good luck and in sorry for the negative comments you received, for just trying to get others opinions

Sissy Bond 3 years

We already told you healing starts within the gut. Another lady also mentioned tea tree oil, coconut oil and other EO s to use.

Ashley Mccray
A

I'm sorry alma. I don't understand why you're getting attacked for asking a question. As I said in my experience it was 8ish years ago. And yes I said I'd do it again because it worked so well. My daughter is now a happy, healthy teenager with zero trace of eczema.
ashley, you don't have to agree with others opinions or experiences and you're being very rude.
I personally probably wouldn't try tea tree oil. I use it on my face for adult acne and it kind of stings, I couldn't imagine how it would feel on poor, already sore eczema skin.

This is the page from Essential Oils Pocket reference regarding Eczema.

I guess none of you let your kids swim in the pool?

Alma Vigil
A

I do. I hadn't thought of that.

Shannon Holman 3 years

Full of chlorine and acid but it's very diluted to the water which would be the same as the bleach bath.

Alma Vigil 3 years

And it works great for bug bites less chemicals than a swimming pool and less germs

Sissy Bond 3 years

A nice oatmeal lotion after the bleach bath is what I did

Sissy Bond 3 years

Bleach is an old time remedy of sorts. I have heard of older people using it for different things. Not saying its safe or natural, but as mentioned, same as a chlorine pool. Bleach is drying to the skin, so that is why it has been used for eczema before.

Sandra Wu

I guess y'all still soak your kids in alcohol baths when they get a 102° fever.. Smh.

Ashley Mccray

Your kids don't go in the pool?

Alma Vigil 3 years

Ashley Mccray, please offer helpful advice instead of crass remarks.

Sandra Wu 3 years

Not crass.. Just pointing out of ignorance and spreading of harmful information.

Ashley Mccray 3 years

Its not ignorant to ask a question and try to learn.

Sandra Wu 3 years

Oh dries the skin don't think that's a good option I thought eczema was because of dry skin so why would I want to dry it out even more ?

Alma Vigil
A

Eczema is a symptom, look at food allergies, gut health and vaccines. These cause eczema. The eczema tell u that there is a deeper problem.

Sandra Wu 3 years

Thank you!! I'll be looking for an allergy specialist!!

Alma Vigil 3 years

And no. We swim in salt water pool. Thank you very much. Eczema doesn't need to be "dried" out. It needs moisture to heal externally. Internally, avoid dairy and gluten.

Ashley Mccray
A

I have. I would simply try swimming in strong chlorinated pools first. It can help some things and did my son with a nasty toe infection we were fighting on vacation one-year. I have had success as well using a little borax and anti bacterial/ fungal soap mix soak for my dogs derm condition he gets between his toes. It basically dries the area and kills off everything.

Catherine Diaz

need stop being so offended... Take what advice suits you ignore the rest...

Christina Rivers

I've stopped vaccines till I figure out what's going on with her eczema and she doesn't eat gluten dairy I know for sure she's allergic to eggs so I avoid anything with egg but I am breast-feeding and so I do consume small amounts of those things I recently started to eliminate it. I think my next option is to take her to an allergy specialist so I know exactly what she's allergic to and I'm going to stop breast-feeding. Thank you for the advice and please make sure your educated on your oils I do know that Teatree oil is not safe for younger children.

Alma Vigil

More info is interesting. My first was covered in eczema and he turned out to be highly allergic reaction to eggs. I'm celiac and gf so that wasn't a consideration but I do like dairy though his father has problems with dairy I did try to keep it in moderation while nursing. We discovered the egg allergy by surprise when he was 9 months old. His eczema didn't didn't totally clear up till he stopped all milk sources around 18 months. We think chocolate and artificial flavoring trigger small flareups now. He's 4.5 at this point. Free of gluten, eggs, dairy, nuts, sesame, and now chocolate for the most part. We did skin and blood testing with the allergist st 9 months and the skin testing again close to 4th birthday.

Elizabeth Strong 3 years

My second did great and I ate a more balanced diet with dairy and eggs in moderation. I think she is too sensitive to dairy and eggs but we have pretty much kept her on the same diet as her brother to risk any major allergic reactions. Will probably do some skin testing on her within the next year. I kinda think the egg and dairy problem are really a gut issue for dad and possibly just genetic. I could live off of eggs as long as I'm not nursing. I think I tried bleach bath a time or two but was too nervous about it to continue. There wasn't anything that would really stop the eczema till big diet changes were made. We had to treat his severe reactions with steroid prescription cream (this is while he was still ebf). I tried lots and lots of stuff without success. But I do know more now that I did then.

Elizabeth Strong 3 years

Why would u stop breast feeding?

Sandra Wu
S

She will be a year in couple of weeks... I do believe in long term breast-feeding my second child I nursed for her for 21 months but if what I'm giving her is poisoning her because of allergies then I don't want to further do that to her.

Alma Vigil 3 years

I have heard of bleaching for many things.. And you could use a sit bath for it I guess

Brett Cramer

Please research vaccines further. Good that u have stopped vaccines, but it sounds like you have made this as a temporary decision. Please continue to look into the harm that vaccines do. You may find your answer to the eczema there.

Sandra Wu
S

absolutely vaccines are a major cause..

Christina Rivers
C

I personally am happy with not vaccinating but my husband is not too sure. Some of them he believes important because we will be doing missions trips in the future with our children to Third World country. But I soon as I realize that she had at eczema I stopped all vaccines.

Alma Vigil
A

Yes I believe vaccines are what causes my son's eczema. I wish I would have realized back then that they were bad!

Change his diet

Sue Dennis

All these ideas are great but have you ever thought WHY does she have eczema? You need to heal and seal his/her gut. Get to the root of the issue

Just the sound of bleach would make me run...
