Need A Substitute For The Old Oatmeal Bath Remedy

Recommended Posts

My little girl used to enjoy oatmeal baths if she got a rash or too many mosquito bites. That's obviously a no-no now. She can't have bubble baths due to frequent UTIs. What do y'all put in a gluten-free comfort bath? I'd also like to know for myself... oatmeal baths used to be a cheap home spa treatment.

Dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant by Enterolab. Family doc dx'ed "gluten sensitive" after dietary response. DQ 6 & DQ 7

8 year old daughter dx'ed gluten/casein intolerant & malabsorption by Enterolab and has been GFCL since June 12, 2007. Excellent response to diet, including growth! Tummyaches & irritability are gone! DQ 5 & DQ 6

Husband has DQ 5 (elementary, my dear Watson!). Self-diagnosed gluten-intolerant by diet response and challenge.

Baking soda works pretty good. Just sprinkle all throughout in a tepid bath. :D

Sounds crazy, but I use tea bags in a tepid bath. The tannic acid is very soothing to irritated skin. I use plain old Lipton black tea or inexpensive green tea (I usually use 3 bags per bath). Just hold the bags under the water as it fills the tub, then throw them in when it's full! :P

Burt's Bees makes a Buttermilk Bath Soak in their "Baby Bee" line. I'm new to all this so im not sure it's gluten-free, but the ingredients lists "Nonfat dry milk, whole dry buttermilk, fragrance" it's awesome! Hoping it's gluten-free!!!

I agree about the tea baths, I use them when I have a rash coming on due to DH. I was told about this when my daughter was real young and having bad bouts of diaper rash. It works amazingly well. Good luck.

Thanks y'all! I knew y'all would know!!

The burts bees sounds divine, but we're also casein free, so we'll have to pass on that one. A "tea bath" sounds yummy even if I'm not itchy.
