    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Good morning all,
    I have a 12 year old boy who refuses to bathe properly, meaning he will get in the shower get wet but won't wash properly and honestly he STINKS!!! No matter what my husband and I do. Any suggestions? Should I just leave him alone and once he really starts to like girls he will do better? Am I answering my own question?

    I had the same problem with my step son. I started buying him axe body wash and the girls started telling him how good he smells. They have a set you can get with body wash and deordrant and a "man loathe". You should start to see a change instantly.
