Does he get it all over, or in circle patches? Owen has it in circle patches.. he has 5 patches on his chest/shoulders, ranging between quarter sized to half dollar sized, and then 2 little dime sized spots on his cheeks.. but, everywhere else on his torso just feels very dry and bumpy, though I don't "see" it, kwim? We just started the Eucerin.. is there anything special about the aquaphor as opposed to the other products made by Eucerin? I'm using the skin calming one -- it's a 3 on their "richness" scale.. maybe I need one that's a bit thicker.. I have to be careful, too, because sometimes if I put certain lotions on (like the Johnsons one!), his skin just gets bright red.. he's got super sensitive skin! The Eucerin doesn't cause any reaction though, so that's good.. I'll look for the Aquaphor bath soap, too..
Is the cortisone cream from the peds? I know you can get OTC cortisone cream, but not sure if that's what you're referring to. DS has his 6 month appointment in like 3ish weeks.. I was figuring I'd just talk with her about his skin issues then, but I'm wondering if maybe I should call and make him an appointment?
