Scaling on the face

Scaling on the face - 09/24/09 08:51 PM

My son's face is peeling really bad right now. I use amlactin on his body once a day to help exfoliate and of course aquaphor but I get nervous about putting the amlactin on his face. It just seems kind of strong. Is there anything else that might work better?

Thanks

Hi Candace,
We've tried Dermal therapy - which worked for a short while but we usually use Lac-Hydrin 12% on Casey. We start with that, then our Cetphil/aloe/glycerin mixture and finish with Aquaphor. We do that 3 times a day. She is 18 months old and tolerates it well but we have been using different things, i.e. dermal therapy since she was quite young. As long as it isn't applied immediately following the bath, it hasn't seemed to bother her.
I find the face and scalp to be my biggest struggles for Casey - but we soldier on and do th ebest we can.

We use Amlactin on Kallie's face and she doesn't seem to be bothered by it.

We use Calmurid and it seems to do the trick!

Is Calmurid over the counter? Where do you get it?

We get it on prescription here in the UK. Not sure if you can get it OTC in the US???

Have you used different clays with minerals? Or it's only useless myths?
