She could use atopiclair lotion or rebask cream or cetaphil restoraderm. All these are products made for skin like your child's. She seems to be suffering from atopic dermatitis. It is a condition where some of the skin proteins are defective. This leads to reduced water holding capacity of the skin. This in turn leads to the skin becoming more sensitive to both infections and allergies. Itching is the most nagging problem in this condition. Repeated application of the above mentioned medicines (3 to 4 times a day) will drastically reduce her itch. Please visit a dermatologist near you so they can counsel you regarding how an atopic child must take care of their skin. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
