  • I'd ask a derm but have you tried peroxide or bleach?

  • My kids knees look dirty when they are really dry.

    I would recommend trying a really good lotion before I would consider skin dye.

    I personally use Arbonne products as I love that they don't contain mineral oils. My kids are using them as well. Our son no longer has dry rough skin using the baby/childrens products and we had tried everything before.

    You can learn more about the products at

    If you would like to try some samples just let me know.

  • i have really dry elbows as well..i found what works best is at night time put lotsa polysporin on them, and then a BIG bandaid..and then during the day rub them with lotion a few wonders

  • First off use lots and lots of lotion throughout the day! Then when you go outside during the summer wear a big glob of sunscreen on your elbows(I know it sounds weird) but your skin will even out, sit out in the sun with sun tan lotion on your body and sunBLOCK on your elbows(remember big glob dont rub in) and it should even out. You might have to do it a few times, but after that it should even all out! Again though I stress the lotion part, lots and lots of lotion!

  • Have you tried Exfoliating Products? Also when using lotions or any skin care products
