Hi!

Just wondering what you all use for dry skin. I mean really dry skin. Mine gets so bad it cracks, splits open. Some things out there for dry skin I can not use as it burns when I put it on. I get so bad I have even used crisco. Even olive oil, might work for some but not on me. Most things in the drugs store don`t even work or feel worse when I put it on. Thought maybe some of you might have some thoughts or what you all use to help out.

Hi lil gabby - I use aveeno products and have not had a problem with them but I also use eucerin creams when my skin is really bad (mostly in the winter).  Have you checked with a dermatologist to see if they can prescribe some dry skin screams that may help?  It may be worth a try.
 
Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.

Hi Gabby. I have some tips for dry skin. When you bathe or shower make sure the water isn't hot. I should be lukewarm. Before you dry off rub baby oil (or the oil of your choice) all over and then dry off. Yeah, you get oil on your towel so you might want to use it just to dry off. I also use Eucerin cream in a jar.
 
Well, I've also had badly cracked heals, but I had a more unusual problem which led me to a dermatologist. For a couple of years I thought I had ingrown fingernails. My rheumy didn't know how to treat it and my PC gave me the name of a dermatologist who works with autoimmune diseases. She told me my fingernails were not ingrown. The sides of my fingernails were lifting off the nail bed. She prescribed 40% Urea Cream. Each night I apply it to my fingernails, toenails, and heals. My cracked heals were better with just a couple of applications. My nails took longer, but they are much better now. So, like finally said, you should probably see a dermatologist for one of their magic potions. Let us know if the bath stuff helps and/or you see a dermatologist. Love, Butterflake

I use Yu-Be Skin Care's Moisturizing Skin Cream. At morning and night - the results really last and my skin hasn't gone back. No more redness, dryness, soreness, itching, flaking or pain. The cream feels luxurious, too - instant relief.

I use Eucerin on arms, legs and body and coconut oil after I get out of the shower. I use Aveda foot cream. It's the only thing that works on my feet. It's pricey though. I have to dilute my shampoo my hair is so dry but it works really well. I use Dermalogica ultracalming cleanser for the face. I use Dove soap and try not to get the shower too hot.

I also use clothes with SPF b/c I am sun sensitive. That helps to keep the sun damage at bay. Plaquenil gave me a rash when I would go out in the sun.
