My little one has episodes of eczema and after soaking her in milk bath, her condition gradually became better. Bathing baby in milk is great as milk contains moisturizing fats in milk, it may help to calm redness from a sunburn or to reduce some of the dryness and itching caused by skin conditions such as xerosis or eczema [source: WebMD]. However, if you are concerned about a skin condition that isn’t clearing up, you should consult your dermatologist before trying to treat yourself with a milk bath.
