Amanda,

Thank you for your reply. I visited the derm yesterday and I had microdermabrasion done on my arms and have a daily regimen to follow in the morning and evening. It's a combo of Retin A lotions and Alpha Hydroxy wash and lotions. In 1 week or so, I hope to see results. Good luck with your son. When he gets older, maybe they'll figure out something that isn't so time consuming.
Thanks again!
