DD has it as well. I cleared it up and kept if away or bad outbreaks from occurring. I can only use ALL detergent. No fabric softeners or dryer sheets. Orange Dial antibacterial soap or Johnson's soap. The only bubbles we can use are the extra sensitive with elmo on it. Not even the free and clear Mr. Bubble. At the first sign of irritation, lube her up with Johnson's lotion. If it's bad right now, lotion her a few times a today and a good amount the following day and it should subside. Keep lotion on hand and try my other routine. Also, always wash new clothing before letting her wear... DD trys to put things on asap and it will irritate her skin. It works wonders for us.

My son has a pretty severe case of it. I have spent a ton of money on pediatricians, dermatologist, and allergist. We have tried pretty much all of the prescription creams and OTC creams. Finally, by fluke, he had to have his tonsils taken out and his ENT's nurse also does allergy testing. She suggested we take milk out of his diet, apparently, though not allergic to milk, milk can be a huge trigger for kids with excema. Sure enough, we tried it as a last resort, within 2 weeks the redness and cracking completely dried up and after applying a heavy lotion like eucerin, you cannot tell that he ever had an outbreak. You may want to see about cutting milk out of her diet.
