Daughter has dry skin in the little wrinkles where her leg meets her foot. It hadn't been bothering her but lately she will "scratch" it with her other foot and the dry spots have bled a bit. Any suggestions for natural remedies? I will be headed to the doctor to pick up an ointment if it doesn't improve?

My daughter has some patches of very dry skin on her arms and we tried Aveeno Baby-but she broke out in a horrible rash! Her ped suggested Aquaphor and I have had great success with that. We use the Aquaphor shampoo and healing ointment-works wonderfully!! Best of luck!!!

Thanks for your advice! I tried the colloidal oatmeal bath (aveeno product) and I am using the aveeno lotion again. We'll see if it helps! I'll keep you posted.

I use Aveeno baby cream on Sebastian, he has cracked skin on his ankles, elbows and behind his knees, this cream has helped alot and reduced down the redness and cracking

My girl had some dry flaky skin in that area - my inlaws put olive oil on it whenthey had her and it seems to have done the job.
