Child has raised white bumps on toes. Applied Vaseline. What could this be?

My daughter had some raised whit bumps on two of her toes. We originally thought it was just dry skin as some of the skin look like it was cracking. We put on Vaseline and such. Now the bumps have spread over all her toes and I even spotted some starting on her big toe on the other foot . The skin where it started is cracked and bleeding . What could this be?

Thank you for your query.

If the skin is cracking and bleeding even after applying Vaseline then your daughter needs to be seen by a doctor or dermatologist to know the exact reason for the issues described by you. Without having a look at the lesions it is very difficult for me to hazard a guess. Till you show her to a dermatologist you can continue applying Vaseline.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
