Can I still take a bath while I'm on my period?

Hi,
I've been taking baths for the past week because I have eczema all over my body and it helps me alot when I take a bath with Epsom salt.  I do want to continue with the Epsom salt bath because my eczema is large scale all over my body.  However, my period came today and I don't know whether it's healthy to take a bath while I'm on my period.  I have my own bathroom and bath tub.  Would it be okay to continue with my bath if I'm on my period? Thanks!

I do it, I just don't stay in long and rinse off afterward.

Its fine, if you are worried about bleeding while in the tub wear a tampon.
