eva,

My hubby has the dry itchy skin and he uses tons of lotion.  It expecially bothers his legs. I have tried dozens of different lotions for him, even from Derm but that did not help any better than commercial brands.

Good Luck

Eva,

If I have been on steroids for awhile I definitely get dry skin and start to itch pretty badly (I scratched myself up pretty badly awhile ago). My doc had my liver tested and it turned out my liver was inflamed. Maybe you should get blood work done to see if you liver enzymes are elevated or anything. I also sometimes feel like my skin is thinning and a bit more sensitive when I am on the 'roids (and for about a month after coming off of them). Take care and I hope you feel better soon!
