      Bleach to Treat Eczema  

      Household bleach has been found to be an effective treatment for children’s chronic eczema.  

      A recent study found giving children with moderate or severe eczema (atopic dermatitis) diluted bleach baths decreased signs of infection and improved the severity and extent of the eczema on their bodies.  

      The oral and topical antibiotics usually prescribed increase the risk of bacterial resistance. Whereas, bleach kills the bacteria but doesn’t have the same risk of creating bacterial resistance.  

      More than two-thirds of eczema patients show signs of staphylococcus on their skin. This bacteria causes infection and worsens the eczema.  

      Completely mix a quarter to a half cup of bleach in a warm bath. Soak in the water for ten minutes. Closing the eyes immerse the head under the bath (if you have eczema on the face/neck). Rinse the skin well with fresh water after the bath. Take a bleach bath three to five times a week or as your doctor advises.
