The scratching is the only problem I have. It doesn't really itch at all actually. I just have a compulsive picking issue. And they itch SOMETIMES. So it's really hard for me. The baths wouldn't help much because they won't stop any compulsive picking, since it's not because of the itchiness. And my mom a nurse, told me bakingsoda in the tub will work better and it's less to clean then oatmeal.
