I notice you're taking 800 mg of Plaquenil a day. Plaquenil will cause itching and it can also make your skin so dry that it cracks. If the cracking skin happens they'll probably take you off the Plaquenil. There is an over the pharmacy counter lotion for VERY dry skin. It's about $18.00 a bottle and it works well with the itching that comes along with Plaquenil. Also, I've found that Oil of Olay's skin conditioner that you use in the shower helps me keep the itching away. Hope you can find something that helps you. Good luck!
