12-Year-Old Son: Warm Tub & Aquaphor
The most important ways my 12-year-old son can care for his skin are to take a 15-minute soak in a warm tub each evening followed by an application of a healing ointment such as Aquaphor. We have been buying the Walmart brand, Equate, which works just as well and is much cheaper. My son has to be certain that he applies the ointment to his arms and legs thoroughly. This daily ritual is critical during the colder, drier months. If he does this, then he needs to use his prescription topical steroid ointments much less often.
