Hi Kelly,
I had never heard of any skin conditions related to IBS. As far as I know, IBS is limited to the functionality of your digestive tract. IMO, I definitely would get a second opinion on that.

I agree with dbab.... I don't believe dry skin is associated with IBS. You might want to see a Dermatologist.
In the winter my skin gets super dry and itchy - to the point where I bleed from itching so much. I buy Gold Bond Body Lotion Medicated or Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion. They both work great.
