Children with Eczema

A clinical study recently showed that eczema and straph infections, which are the condition where bacteria is affecting the skin to be itchy and rashy -- can be treated with household bleach! There are numerous stories about it being published in medical blogs and the recipe is really simple. Use this for any children suffering with the condition, especially if you're treating a flare-up.

Things You'll Need:

  • Bath tub
  • Water
  • Bleach

  1. Check the spots that are most sensitive and flaring up. This method works best for parts that are not on the face. Inspect these spots for straph infection and anything moderate to severe flare-ups.
  2. Run a bath in a clean tub. Use room temperature water as warm to hot water can irritate skin further. Explain to your child that this is not just any regular bath and must avoid getting the water on their face and especially keep it out of their eyes. Bleach is a dangerous chemical. They don't want to drink it either. You will supervise as well.
  3. Measure out 1/4 cup of household bleach and pour it into the tub. Slowly mix it into the water so it spreads evenly. Have the child step in and submerge limbs and torso into the water, being sure to keep the neck and head out of the water. Let them remain in the solution for no more than 10 min.
  4. After 10 minutes are up, have the child hop out of the tub and pat them dry with a towel. Do this twice a week and you should see amazing results quickly. Make sure to put the bleach away and keep it out of reach of children.

Tips & Warnings
  • This keeps your tub clean too!
  • Consult your doctor if you're considering the discontinuing of antibiotics. It is strongly advised you finish your prescription.
  • Keep bleach and bleach solution out of eyes and away from any expensive fabrics!
  • Do not do this more than twice a week or for more than 10 min at a time.
I head of this years ago when my little sister developed eczema. It worked for her. 5* and REC
