Oatmeal baths help alleviate itching from eczema and other skin irritants. To make one, simply blend about 1/3 cup of oats on the highest setting until you have a fine powder. Sprinkle the powder into a tub of running water and stir until water looks cloudy and feels "silky". Let your little one soak for around 20 minutes.
