For Eczema, a Simple Solution
Relief may be as close as the laundry room for kids who suffer from the painful and itchy skin condition known as atopic dermatitis, or eczema.
In a small study, researchers at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine have found that the best treatment for the chronic condition, which affects an estimated 17 percent of school-age kids, may be as simple as mixing a small amount of bleach in the bath water.
If anybody out there tries this, I'd love to hear how it works.

Unbelievable! I have some itchy bumps on my back and along my jaw line. I've had them for about 10 years, and the dermatologists say they are itchy red bumps. It's frustrating. I took a small solution of water and bleach and rubbed it on my jaw line for the past three days. I'm almost cured! I mean, it is unreal how well this has worked. I have tried everything. It's not eczema that I have, but it still worked! Thanks so much!
