Apparently taking a series of diluted bleach water baths will relieve Eczema for children. A recent study was done on children ranging in age from 6 months to 17 years showing

“such rapid improvement in eczema and infection symptoms that the researchers stopped the study early, so that children in the placebo group could get the same amount of relief.”

I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m never a big fan of using chemicals on skin, especially my child’s. While it’s great these kids are getting some relief, I wonder what side effects or problems down the road will sprout from these chemical baths.

You definitely won’t catch my kids in a study like this.
