Well as for me, my mom can not remember when it started getting really bad, but as for Braden (now 5 months) his started to show signs of thickening around 3 1/2- 4 months. It is not really thick as of yet but the scale is there just like mine is but his is not dark like mine gets. His face is totally clear also and his hands seem to peel. His roughest spots are the inner thighs where diapers rub, ankles, and his elbows.I also do a daily bath for him and then I use aquaphor. Our new derm has suggested salex & protopic creams to use but I have not noticed any difference yet, it has only been a few days. What creams are you using that have the AHA and do they seem to burn?
My face as well as braden's is clear and mine always has been so I assume Braden's will be too. I actually get comments all the time about how great the skin on my face is, a very clear complexion.
