Just saw this on the web:
simply put 1/2 cup of whole oats into a nylon stocking and hang it from the faucet as you let warm bath water run over it.

Poor thing!

Does this help?

We use this product in these situations. Any chance you can get hold of something like that?

Thanks Kate- I know about Aveeno but it's 1/1/05 and shops are closed here + I am not sure they sell it in this country. Your first link is useful.Thanks !

We just tie the oatmeal into a muslin bag or the foot of some old tights and hang it under the taps, then put it in the water while in the bath.
