Does anyone get horrendous dry skin. I get these dry patches that are like welts all over. They hurt and itch like crazy. My face also is extremely dry. No lotion I try gets rid of it, not even Eucirin. I am so tired of itching everywhere. Going to doc this afternoon and will talk to her about that and my awful headache I have had since Sat.

Ang, my daughter, Misty has really dry skin.  She has found using Petroleum Jelly really works for her.  After her shower & before she dries off, she puts PJ all over herself.  This seals in the moisture & has worked so well for her.  Then she pats dry.  After she found this on a forum somewhere & tried it, it was all she talked about, she is so happy with it.  She says one of the best things is she can get it in the dollar aisle of the grocery store.  Hugs, Denise

I find that oil helps too. I put oil on my skin before and after a shower. It also seals in the moisture. But I have heard that the petroleum jelly works very well.

I hope that you can solve your skin problems. In this winter air, I find that it gets really bad. I too itch from it. And that gets so agrivating.

Best wishes to you.
