In brief: Proper material
Oatmeal baths are not baths made from oatmeal but is made from the fine dust created in the milling of this grain.
The fine dustlike material is added to leukwarm water and the kid allowed to soak for a period in the solution. It has a great effect on itching but may not alter the healing process.
