  • Yes, my youngest has bad eczema and we were told to bath him only twice a week, to make sure they were short baths and to rinse completely before the gets out.

  • No, which is a good thing because my son LOVES to play in the tub and would stay in all day if I would let him.

  • My child has eczema also and the doc said to only bath a couple times a week and not to soak in the tub. We wipe down with a wet (not soapy) cloth before bed every night and morning, but she only gets a full bath a few times a week and her hair has never had shampoo of any kind on it.
