Hi fellow EHKers,

We recently took a mini 3-day vacation and while we were diligent about keeping Evan's skin moisturized (he is a 10mo with Palmar plantar EHK), we were a bit more relaxed about his baths. We do use a mild bleach solution in his baths to prevent infections. He went swimming in a pool on Wed PM and then we did not do the whole bath routine again until Saturday morning. We did moisturize him in the morning & evening. He gets Ultra Healing Curel on most of his body, olive oil in the groin area and Aquaphor on his hands and feet. Dare I say it, but his skin seemed slightly better than usual. It was much less red and he definitely had fewer blisters. Evan's skin was not any drier or scalier than usual. Could it be the break from the bath? My thinking was that the break from the water allowed his skin to do some catch-up (thickening).

I figured that I would check with the experienced experts before I checked with the docs.

Any thoughts or experience would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Kimberly
