Default Persistent dry skin

Halle's skin is so dry and flaky! She is on the tail end of quilling right now (she just turned one) so I'm not sure if that is adding to it. I've tried everything. Coconut oil, flax seed oil, humidifier, HealX soother spray, oatmeal baths. I just feel like nothing really works. I've tried to find Humilac, Rain spray, and sunshine factor and all are no longer made. ANY suggestions? Anyone know where I could possibly gets one of the products I listed? Or something just as good?

Have you made sure that she isnt suffering from mites? Quill loss is also associated with them.
But quilling does add to uncomfortable skin and irritation

Yes, I've checked for mites. I actually noticed a difference today after using the soother spray a lot lately. I think it may be working! Thank you though!
