    sorry i haven't been back to give a report. we have been using amlactin 12% on her skin and her skin is finally becoming smooth. this is the first product we tried and it is working. she applies it morning, and night, and after showering.

    i know it isn't a cure. but it is working. i don't know if her skin will ever be as smooth as a babies behind but she shows marked improvement than when we started.

    Is Amlactin a pharmaceutical? Where did you obtain it? If I need a prescription, how do I make sure my doctor gives me that specific one? Do most short term health insurance companies cover prescription acne medication? These are a lot of questions for you...
