But there has to be something else I can do. Can anyone help me?? TIA
Allergist said NO eucerin for us as lanolin is bad for my ds.
And, here this may sound evil but if you're not at the weepy/open stage, go swimming in chlorine. Again, I can't explain it but it's like it totally cleans out any "xxx" (whatever) on his skin and lets it start over. I immediately afterwards (within 3 mins) slather on lots of cetaphil cream. We've also used calendula ointment and a salve by Wise Woman.
