When Your Loved One Has Sensitive Skin
Perhaps you don’t have sensitive skin. But your spouse does. Or another relative, maybe an elderly parent, who lives with you, has sensitive skin. Babies and children can and often do have sensitive skin, too. It can be tricky to care for, but it’s worth making the effort.
Sensitive skin can be easily irritated, which can cause discomfort or pain. And in elderly people, sensitive skin may be more likely to break down and cause sores or wounds that can get easily infected.
