It is good that you found help. This is the reason I always prefer people to go to the hospital when they notice something wrong. Children not being able to talk means a lot. They might be going through a lot of things. But since they cannot express themselves they end up keeping quite about it. In return they suffer in silence. So as to avoid this whenever a parent notices something that is bot normal. They should rush the child to the hospital. In your case it is good that you noticed it early. Because the child might end up suffering for long. Concerning the prescription that you were give. I was not aware that a child could suffer from dry skin. Does it mean that you never used to apply baby oil on her. Or what was the cause of the illness. It could have been better if you had elaborated more on the same. I believe there might be parents out there who would wish to know more on the same.
