Is using OxyClean in the washer BAD for eczema?

I love to put Oxy Clean in my washing machine. BUT, I wonder if having my clothes washed in it will cause my eczema to flare up?

  • I have Eczema and have used OxyClean and it has not bothered me. The only real way to find out is to try it and if it does, then don't use it again.

  • My entire family has Eczema. Me, SO, both the boys & the new baby will probably have it once she's born. I use OxyClean all the time. The spray and the powder. And I use my regular tide. I've never seen a problem. No extra dryness or any rashes, etc. Even though our Ezcema is bad, everyones case is different so you won't know until you try. But for my family we haven't seen an issue yet.
