Hi Free
This may be an allergy or an eczema - is she using vaseline on her face or body? Some ointments and creams are irritating to sensitive skins. Try using only UEA ( aqeous cream ) to keep her skin moisturized and let her bath with Elizabeth Ann baby shampoo as a soap.
If it persists you may need to take her to a dermatologist.
