A day “airing out” Jordan’s little arm didn’t really help get rid of her heat rash. So I put some cream on it before bed time and I hope it helps. I’ve been obsessively cleaning the prosthetic, so I know that’s not the reason behind her rash this time around.

The day ended with Jordan seeming more like herself. I can’t see any teeth poking, but I may not be looking in the right place. I do know that she’s madly in love with her brother and the dogs… They make her giggle the most. And honestly, she could sit outside all day and giggle manically and say “dog” again and again and again. I have to get video of the laugh. She has two kinds: hysterical laughter (from tickles and outright silliness) or mischievous laugher (from seeing things she likes or doing something she’s proud of).

Oh and one other thing. Without her prosthetic, my girl climbed up 5 stairs all by herself. It’s cool and scary all at the same time.

Riley started getting nasty rashes too from his prosthetic. I tried everything. PP recommended Udder Cream and that just made it worse. I finally wondered if it might be a sweat rash and researched it online a bit. I found a site on prosthetics that recommended trying Secret Platinum on a clean, dry little arm. Once the rash healed, I tried it and its has worked really well. No more rash. Plus, his arm doesn’t smell like a foot anymore when I remove the helper hand.
Of course we also clean out the socket every day do with alcohol wipes.
Hope this helps.
