Can I use regular quaker oats oatmeal to make an oatmeal bath for eczema?

Not the same. The material used in the "oatmeal bath" is not oatmeal. There is a fine powder created in the milling of many different grain products & that fine powder (an oat dust if you would) is packaged & sold as an additive for its soothing qualities. I'm suppose you could try this but would be wasting oatmeal & end up with a mess that wouldn't help much.
