My 11 year old son has been struggling with eczema since birth. We've tried every OTC and prescription available. the dermatologist resorted to oral steroids to calm two recent horrible outbreaks. Within two days he was completely clear! Not wanting to have to continue that, she also recommended we try bleach baths followed by CeraVe cream and a topical cream called mometasone - but the thing that's worked the best has been the bleach baths! 1/2 bath tub of warm water, one cup regular bleach, soak for 5-10 minutes and you can rinse with soap and water afterwards if you like. Try this every other day for one week - I think you'll be amazed! Pat dry after bath and apply CeraVe cream (not a prescription-if not on shelf at store, pharmacist can order for you, about $20 for a large jar). I have not had to use the mometasone as long as I follow the every other day regime with the bath and the CeraVe cream. The cure has been AMAZING! He's so happy to not have to wear long sleeves to cover his red and often bloody arms and hands! Please give this a try!!! Can't believe I've never seen it posted anywhere before

My daughter has had eczema since she was born and we tried the bleach bath. But she said it burned and said the next day her condition was worse. I did not have her wash with her Dove after the bath...maybe I should have and she did use Cerva since this was recommended. How may times did you do the beach bath before you say results? Thanks as she is soo embarrassed having her legs look like they do. She is a Poms girls and is thinking of quiting because of her eczema.

I've had eczema for a number of years on my feet. It was only recently that it appeared on my hands. I came across this website and postings a few months ago and saw where someone had used bleach baths to help with their outbreaks. I'm back to tell you it works! I have a form of eczema called pustular eczema. Little blisters form under the skin and then break open. It's itchy and painful and because of the oozing, quite embarassing. Since discovering the bleach recomendations when I feel an outbreak, I pour a little bleach in a bowl of warm water and soak my hands or feet for about 10 minutes. Because it's on a tougher area of skin I do it daily without irritation. It's a miracle cure. Swimming in the summer in a chlorine pool makes a great difference too. Thanks for the recommendations!

Similar experience to commentor. Tried bleach bath on 2.5 year old twins--first day, no visible effect, but they did seem to scratch less, so I was hopeful. 2nd day (and i used LESS bleach 2nd day--and MUCH LESS than this posted recommends!!! followed minimal guidelines at www.eczemacarecenter.com/home/eczema/7 from northwestern u. where study originated) one twin had greatly increased redness of skin, and the other's blistered horribly. really quite a scary experience--and i'd only tried the bleach in desperation as a last resort (well, guess not LAST!) despite my gut instincts against. please beware--just my experience.

I can't believe anyone would put their kid in bleach. I'm glad that it works, and I'm sure if you are desperate, but BLEACH IS POISON. And then it sits and literally soaks into their skin. I would not use that as a solution on a regular basis. What are the long term effects of bleaching your kid? Can't be good.
