Always within 3 min after bath.
-Short baths, warm water, not too hot. Fragrance free soap and shampoo.
-100% cotton clothes (in contact with skin)
-Detergent: unscented, dye free , Do NOT use softeners
-Hydrocortisone 1% cream for a few days, limit to 7-10 days per flare. If not better, see his doctor.
