wipes for school
I was just wondering what types of wipes everyone uses to wash their child's hands. Do you use baby wipes? Are they good enough to remove traces of peanut oil?
The reason I ask is my son has a new allergy dx. It is called cold induced urticaria and he breaks out in hives most often from cold water. (Technically, the hives break out as the skin warms up).
At home, I just make sure the tap water is the right warm temperature and we don't have a problem. But the water at school does not get warm enough and I have been called up to the school twice already after my son has broken out in hives on his hands after washing his hands.
Besides the fact that I am wondering why he has only washed his hands twice at school (things that make you go hmmmm), he obviously needs to wash his hands but avoid cold water.
So just wondering specifically what types of wipes are best to get the job done? Techically, I'm not even sure if this will work as wipes usually tend to be on the cold side, but I want to give it a shot.
