My pediatric derm. prescribed 20% urea cream for Kenny's arms and legs and 10% urea for his stomach, face and back. She said to use it every day but every other week. I guess my question is should I use Amlactin or something else on the other weeks to keep it from building up? Is it wise to mix all these different creams. One time I used the urea in the morning and the amlactin at night before bed and he got a few red spots on his legs, they did go away after a little while but I wondered if it was too much for him.
I worry about him absorbing too much into his blood stream, but if I don't use some kind of exfoliant his arms and legs build up so fast. I don't know how often to use the urea or amlactin. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
