Re: 2 skin problems

Well, I'm late in replying in time for your party; hope it went well.
All I can think of is dry skin. My husband has the same problem. You need to moisturize well after every shower, year round. I started doing this years ago and haven't had problems since.
Also have DH use Gold Bond Medicated powder for the "sensitive areas". He used to use vaseline until I convinced him the medicated powder works better. Been using it ever since!
I use Dollar General's powder in the gold container. Same thing only less!
Worth a shot.
I think the red spots are from the hot water, maybe like a heat rash? Limit the length of your showers and use warm water instead of hot which is way more drying. Even if you can limit your showers per week during cold dry weather. Sponge bathe every other night instead.
Good luck.
