Hello Christina, I would say yes. There are two products I have discovered at Sams Club, but I think you can order from any drugstore Amlactin 12% and Amlactin 12% anti-itch formula.If Amlactin is not working, ask your dermatologist if he would suggest Lachydrin 12% in cream form. I think it is stronger and works better than the Lachydrin lotion. Some of my friends attending the FIRST Atlanta National conference (2006) mentioned their preference for Aqua Glycollic over Lachydrin or Amlactin. On cold nights, I am also applying inexpensive glycerin. I hope this helps and keep us informed on his progress.
