Extremely dry skin

My daughter has very dry skin all over and around the elbows, it is very worst. The skin looks cracked in those areas. She goes for regular swimming classes which makes her skin very worst and we are using olesoft max cream for her. Can we use any particular soap or lotion for such dry skin. Please advise.

Dry skin is very uncomfortable condition associated with itching,scaling,cracking. It is caused due to various reasons. Few people have dry skin always and few develop dry skin in particular seasons usually winter. Dryness is usually more over forearm leg and face. Causes for dryness include winter weather, harsh soaps (which will remove the natural moisturizer barrier of your skin), irritants( which could be creams u apply or clothes or ornaments) , health issues (like allergic dermatitis or psoriasis ) Treatment to dry skin includes hydrate yourself well drink plenty of fluids, avoid using harsh soaps, ‌use cleansing lotions for face n mild soap for body , use moisturizer after showers. It's better to consult dermatologist once if dryness is more.
