About Domeboro® Soothing Soak

Domeboro® is an advanced version of Burow’s Solution, which was created to relieve the itching and inflammation of minor skin irritations by surgeon and anatomist Karl August Burow.  Dr. Burow was also the inventor of plastic surgery and wound healing techniques which are still in wide use today. Dome Laboratories, modified Burow’s Solution for the modern marketplace. Dome Laboratories specialized in creating and refining treatments for allergies and skin conditions. So if you’ve been wondering about our name: it’s a blend of Dome (Laboratories) and Boro (for Burow’s solution). It may sound a little funny, but is intended to honor Domeboro®’s creators and a long history of caring for and calming skin irritations and rash treatment.

Use Domeboro on skin irritation caused by:

  • Plant Rashes: A red streaky rash with blisters that typically follows an encounter with poison Ivy, oak, or sumac.
  • Jewelry: Contact dermatitis from jewelry, usually  jewelry that contains nickel.
  • Soaps & Detergents: Contact dermatitis and allergic reactions caused by detergents, soaps, and fragrances in cleaning products.
