Oh, poor you, sounds awful. Normal porridge oats is fine, tie it into a muslin cloth or put it in the leg of a pair of tights and hang it underneath the tap so that the water runs through it. You can use the bag on your skin as well.

yes, put them in a sock and hang it under tap. You can also use bicarbonate of soda and take an anti-histamine 9if allowed)
