I am just guessing, but a possiblity is that she may have atopic dermatitis. A new class of dermatological creams are available by prescription- one is Elidel. I have had success with it on several patients. Carmol is a cream that contains urea. It is sold in varying strengths up to 40%. An OTC cream that you might try first that is similar is Amlactin. If this doesn'tdo it- see a podiatrist and inquire about Elidel.
