  • use oatmeal and milk mixture on it to reduce the itching, put mittens on her and use calamine lotion religiously

  • Once you put some itch releiver on it, try to keep her occupied with something else (like coloring) so that she isn't focusing on the itching. Also keeping her hands busy should help.
