Thank you for your query.

I can understand your dilemma. You need to protect your child so that she does not lose much water from the exposed parts. Discuss with your doctor who shall advise some ointments so that the exposed areas are protected. It shall take some time for the layers to grow.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
