Sure-fire dry skin remedy

This is so simple it's stupid, but works well enough my child (with excema BAD) wildly impressed his dermatologist. First, soak the area (or take a bath) in lukewarm water for 30 mins. PAT dry- DON'T RUB- and coat th area (or whole self) with generous helping of vegetable shorting (Crisco). Then put on wet pajamas (wring them out good first), with dry pajamas on top, and sleep that way. It won't cure the excema, but it will soften the skin nicely and keep it hydrated, which is half the problem with excema anyway.
