Try some neosporin and wrap up in lightweight cotton wrap. I have the same problem on my hands every winter and neosporin helped me loads. Use the ointment though, not the cream. And do it overnight because you should see/feel a difference in the morning. Then just use your fave lotion during the day. Like I use Aveeno.

If that doesnt help then Id see your Dr about it

when your hormones have a big change like having your child, your skin expels the sodium loryl solfate and other bad stuff like smoke and pollutants that are in the lotions and soaps you use and from the air around you, which is why you are breaking out, the hormone change also will cause your skin to dry out, try finding moisturizers that DONT have mineral oil (bad for your skin and dries it out really badly),  or sodium loryl solfate (this is the soap skum you scrub out of your tub and sinks found in many body and face washes to make them suds up) and wash and moisturize twice a day!!! my best suggestion would be checking out LBRI products if you are from the united states. all natural and the first ingredient is always aloe which is naturally healing. all the aloe in the products comes from large aloe barbadance plants in texas USA, and have all natural fragrances from fruit extracts and deep sea barnacles. the products are so natural that I use them not only on myself but on my 2 year old daughter and I recommend for new borns too! it is all natural making it healthier for yours and your baby's skin, even healthier and more recommended than JOHNSONS AND JOHNSONS baby lotion and soaps. hope it helps and if you need any more information on it inbox me!! I swear by this stuff lol  MAKE SURE THE LOTIONS YOU ARE USING DONT HAVE ANY ALCOHOL OR MINERAL OIL IN THEM CAUSE THEY WILL ONLY MAKE YOUR SKIN FEEL GOOD FOR A LITTLE BIT, BUT THOSE INGREDIANTS WILL REALLY DRY YOUR SKIN OUT EVEN WORSE
