Thank you for your query,
The dry, rough soles of feetand hands are looking like fungal infection of the palms and soles called Tinea pedis and cruris.
But physical examination is important to exactly diagnose the condition.
So consult your Pediatrician for the diagnosis and appropriate antifungal topical and systemic treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
