Recommendations for Dry Skin Care
- Showers of short duration using lukewarm water (not very hot) are best.
- Use mild soap sparingly in areas that are not dirty. Excess soap and scrubbing will remove natural oils from skin and cause dryness and itching.
- After each shower or bath, apply heavier cream to dryer patches of dry skin or eczema. Then apply moisturizer to the entire body.
- Your Physician may recommend a prescription cream for severe dry skin or eczema.
