you could try olive oil. (never put on the skin something you wouldn't put in her mouth...)

stop using any "baby" products on her. the chemicals in a lot of them can worsen dry skin and things like eczema

just wash her with plain water. if it persists then try olive oil

Olive oil, my ds is 5 weeks and is prone to dry skin but a coating of olive oil a day seems to keep it at bay. I apply it to his face/scalp with cotton pads and massage it with my hands everywhere else.

thank u will try olive oil, just wasnt sure if tht was ok near her eyes. yes i use fairy, but good point if she rests against people with bio powder may irritate it

Even non-bio isn't great for kids with allergies. I used Ecover which helps.
