“Bath water should never feel hot and uncomfortable because it can compromise the skin barrier,” Wnek explains. “The National Eczema Association recommends lukewarm (not hot) water.” Additionally, the NEA recommends soaking for no longer than 15 minutes, so try to keep your bath on the shorter end.
