My son began showing an all-over (except under diaper) dry skin rash as soon as winter arrived. After trying many creams, oils, lotions, even olive oil, I finally found something completely different that worked for him: humidity in the air.
Our house was extremely dry. So I stopped using my dryer, and started hanging laundry to dry all around the house. The air became moist, his dry skin cleared up, and our electric bill is lower now too!
Hope this helps.
