You can try adding Oilatum to her bath. Also use emulsifying ointment as a soap instead of any other soaps. An Omega supplement is also a good idea.

Another option that has shown brilliant results is a cream called Xiuli - To order this you can email

There is so many things to try but i would like to suggest something, When she baths add some Salt (not table salt) to the bath water.

There is also a cream called AI Lipocream or Elidel cream that has worked for some of my clients..
