Over 30 million Americans suffer from Atopic Dermatitis / Eczema. BleachBath.com is a FREE resource to help raise awareness about a simple, affordable way to treat this common skin condition.
Online PR News – 16-September-2011 – – This month a group of prominent doctors launched the site http://www.BleachBath.com to act as a valuable resource for both doctors and patients. The goal of the website is to establish a centralized location for all the latest research and information regarding the use of bleach baths to treat eczema, Atopic Dermatitis, psoriasis, Staphylococcus aureus (staph), Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MSRA), and other skin infections.
One of the site founders, Dr. Clay Cockerell, dermatologist, says, “Although still relatively unknown among the general population, adding bleach to bath water is a highly effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions, especially for eczema. The method has been around for more than a hundred years and is safe and effective for both children and adults. It is also inexpensive and can easily be done in the comfort of a patient’s home. ”
Dr. Fred Ghali, pediatric dermatologist, adds, “We’re hoping that dermatologists, pediatricians and infectious disease doctors will choose to send their patients to http://www.BleachBath.com for information on bleach baths when they choose to prescribe a bleach bath as a treatment. Patients who have been prescribed a bleach bath will find the age appropriate recipe and information on how bleach baths work and how they are used.”
With all the recent news about antibiotic resistant bacteria, the site founders want people to know that not only are bleach baths a highly effective skin treatment, they are critical in the fight against antibiotic resistant bacteria.
“Inconsistent use and overuse of topical and oral antibiotics can contribute to the development of antibiotic resistant dangerous bacteria. We need to use simple methods of removing dangerous bacteria from the skin without the use of antibiotics whenever possible. A bleach bath represents such a simple method.” says Dr. Azam Anwar.
Studies show that failure to continue antibiotic medication for the prescribed length of time can create mutated strains of bacteria, which have long term consequences. Bleach baths kill bacteria completely, providing a safer option when appropriate as a treatment.
