She also scratching her hands a lot . At the pharmacy they said was just dry but I think that's something else because she wakes over night because of that

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Yes 2% ketoconazole topical can be used in kids as well for fungal infection. However given the hand symptoms, this can be eczema --immune reaction. That will require a steroid ointment like hydrocortisone. Hence better to check with her GP as well.
