Our 2 year old grandson has dry, itchy skin. We apply aquaphor and alclometasone dipropionatas as advised, but it's not helping?

In brief: Few ideas

Depending on the reason why the medications were prescribed there could be various reasons why they are not working.
(Ex: applying the medications correctly and as directed? May need stronger treatments, different combinations, etc). Have follow up appt with pediatrician and possibly referral to pediatric dermatologist if warranted.
