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.
