Q.

Dry Skin

Hi, Dr.
My daughter is 14months old and seems to have very dry skin. I use aquareous cream during her bath time to keep her skin moist, as well have started adding a few drops of baby oil to her bath to see if that makes a difference.
Its very dry to the touch, especially on her legs and tummy.
I did notice little bumps on her arm whcih to us seemed like excema but soon went away.
Any more ideas on what i can use to help wiht her dry skin?
THank you

Your baby daughter does seem to have a form of eczema.Do not use any soaps or bubble bath for her.This is most important.Use Epizone E instead of soap when you bath her. She should be bathed every day. After bathing her apply Epimax Junior to her dry skin
