Adopted daughter's skin

Our adopted daughter (now age 3 1/2) is half african american but doesn't have very dark skin, however, it feels like sandpaper (seriously, not even an exaggeration!) and even using something as mild as vaseline will burn and itch her. It seems to heal up for the most part with hydrocortisone cream, but then we have to keep her slathered up daily with heavy moisturizers and grease or it gets sandpaper-like immediately and the burning and itching return. Is this eczema? I see there are some who adjust diet, and if that would help her extreme crabbiness as well, I am game for anything at this point! Please advise!
