Scratching/sores: What is this?
My daughter has severe severe itchy skin. She also has keratosis pilaris, which is something with her hair follicles. She has the worst case of dandruff I've ever seen on a child. We've use Sarna on the skin, apple cider vinager on the hair. Lately she has been scratching so hard and I started recently noticing these red sores. Now I don't know if this is a new skin condition on her and she is scratching at it, or if the sores are simply from her scratching so hard. Any ideas? I do have an appointment with her doctor next week, but I don't know if I will get any concrete diagnosis.
