She is bothered with dry itchy skin which she has been all her life - she is now nearly 9

I understand your concern.

I am glad to assure you that it is not looking like a CAL spot.

There is mild dry skin.

It might be just a dry skin or atopic dermatitis.

I suggest -

1 Topical emollients and lotions will help.

2. Do not apply Calamine lotion as sometimes it may aggravate the situation please.

3. If this not showing effect in 48 hours you can apply 1% Hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 7 days and the once daily in the morning for another 7 days and then stop it please.

I usually suggest this with excellent results.
