A lot of parents misunderstand that NMT doesn't allow taking a bath/shower for more than 1 month at least though I have never explained like that and of course, there's no such instruction in Dr. Kenji Sato's protocol.
And some of them sometimes announce that their child got infected or got aggravated due to NMT...
water restriction is not for 6 and under in the basic info.
Of course, even in adults, sufferers intake a medically proven safe level of quantity and it is very effective for TSW (Topical Steroid Withdrawal) as evidenced by NMT's more than 30 years of great results.
NMT is the treatment to not apply anything to the skin and to avoid any moisturizing act too. This is the basic knowledge of NMT. (There are a few exceptions.)
They need to think about the period of skin cell turnover at least.
Well, these topics above are some examples of why I keep telling everyone to learn NMT from the source first to get the correct knowledge. (See the source info at the bottom)
I'm pretty sure that parents who accomplished NMT successfully can answer correctly regarding the incorrect NMT info above because ALL of them learned it very seriously.
If parents consider initiating NMT, they need to learn it VERY seriously because most of them have to accomplish it without NMT doctors' direct support. For children's faster healing, each parent has to become a master of NMT thinking about the current world's situation, meaning most of us can't meet doctors who can support without steroids.
I don't recommend starting NMT without learning it very seriously.
Please imagine. Medical students spend many years becoming doctors in college, meaning they make unfathomable efforts.
Dr. Kenji Sato recognized TSW a long time ago and has been providing NMT for more than 3 decades.
His wife, Dr. Mitsuko Satou who is a pediatrician also has been providing non-steroidal treatment for almost 3 decades.
Learning medicine is not simple or easy.
Finding only a little information on social media and starting NMT is not a sound choice.
Please don't take an action immediately trusting incorrect info without making sure because your wish is to heal your child/baby as soon as possible...right?
Once you made a decision to initiate NMT, you have to get correct knowledge because parents are the only ones to protect their little ones.
You should obtain medical info from reliable ones but not from rumors or personal experiences only.
I started to share NMT protocol in 2017 with TSW sufferers in the world since I have experienced horrible TSW on the entire body after using the strongest topical steroids for 52 years, and was healed with NMT in 3 months miraculously. To be precise, it was not a miracle because ALL other inpatients also have cured/improved within 3 months on NMT.
I got approval to share it worldwide from the advocate, Dr. Kenji Sato, and he has been assisting me in reviewing them to not provide incorrect 'medical info' for the sufferers' faster healing on a non-profit basis. So I have been providing the correct NMT info in the source.
Since a lot of TSW sufferers who tried NMT through the info that I provided got well/improved amazingly fast all over the world, it spread VERY rapidly worldwide.
Nowadays, you can see NMT info here and there and it is REALLY wonderful because there is no perfect method for TSW so far, however, we see much incorrect NMT info that may prolong the symptoms too. Since NMT spread worldwide, we can't catch up with all incorrect info so I keep telling sufferers/caregivers to learn NMT from the source, here and there.
Frequent washing and using soap (especially liquid soap) are not very good because you shouldn't wash off normal bacterial flora (natural bacteria/indigenous bacterium in the skin), natural moisturizers, sebum, etc...that are necessary for healing, but at the same time, hygiene must be taken into consideration to avoid infections.
Making a decision of frequency of taking a bath/shower is very difficult but each parent needs to decide it by themselves seeing kid's symptoms as long as you do NMT since it is hard to get appropriate non-steroidal treatment from doctors in any country in the current world's situation.
The only advice I can give you is to finish it as quickly as possible. 10 sec? 1 min? That's good enough in my opinion. You just need to understand that the main reason for taking a shower is to avoid infections.
If you'd like to clean the area around your baby's mouth after eating, tap it very gently with a wet clean cotton gauze, and right after that, gently absorb the water with a dried clean gauze to dry it. (In my experience, drying should be done immediately and completely.)
It is also strongly recommended to wash new dried gauze once (washing with tap water is okay) and dry it in advance to avoid irritation from the gauze.
Also, NMT stands for No Moisturizing Treatment and not 'moisturizer' or 'moisture' or 'therapy', etc... Please remember the correct name. It is VERY important because many of them who need this can't reach the source info with incorrect names.
NMT is the treatment not only avoiding applying moisturizers to the skin but avoiding any 'moisturizing' acts thoroughly. Incorrect names give different impressions though avoiding any moisturizing acts completely is VERY important for sufferers' faster healing. Again, this is called No Moisturizing Treatment.
NMT has been showing excellent results for more than 3 decades in Japan. It just has been taking time to spread due to social circumstances.
Successfully healed sufferers and their caregivers can educate doctors little by little to change the world's situation that is unable to choose non-steroidal treatment.
Anyway, the choice is yours but to accomplish NMT, your strong determination, perseverance and correct knowledge are important and they will help you and your children.
Hang in there! Healing happens to your baby/child too!
