my son's legs are all splotchy and itchy. also just yesterday his hands got all bright red from being dry and itchy. i guess i just don't know what is normal for itchy winter skin and what is not normal. i have been using aveeno lotion on him but i'm not sure it helps and yesterday it was burning him. he was crying because his hands hurt. we are going to take him to the doctor asap just to get his opinion/advice, but i wanted to see what you all think...? my husband used to get similar splotchy skin around his knees, elbows, and armpits and he always called it psoriasis but when i google images of psoriasis, it looks nothing like this.
my son is 2 btw

It may be eczema. It can be hereditary as well. The Dr. can prescribe intensive cream for him.
