Hallo Petro
this could be a sign of eczema especially if it is red, itchy and tends to shred skin. It may help to moisturize liberally and if this does not help, let your doctor have a look as she may need some cortisone treatment. Bath only with Elizabeth Anne baby shampoo or Dove soap and use UEA as lotion on her hands 4-6 times per day
