  • It could just be the cold weather making her skin dry. Try putting lotion on her hands and feet, My son did this a lot on his knees when he was a baby in the winter time.

  • 2 things- dry because of the weather or allergic reaction to any number of things from perfume/dry in lanudry detergent, to the fiber content of her clothes (socks, mittens) usually synthetics will cause it.

    if lotion does not fix it, think allergies and try to pinpoint what is bugging her.

  • is this a one time thing? it might be a mild case of hand foot and mouth( a virus )
    if not i would say dermititis. or an allergey. if it is extreme ask a dr. if its not you might try using a different soap, and watching for a pattern of occurances.
