Really dry itchy skin (like a rash)

3 posts in this topic

For the past week i have been scratching my legs and sides up so bad that i have sort of a rash there (and a few scabs). I always take really hot baths so thats the problem right there. Its very dry out and cold now and my skin is just really dry.

I have like 3-4 pimples on my back right now but i am not worried about it. I am just tired of tearing my skin up itching so badly cause of the weather.

So putting on hydrocortisone cream hasnt really helped me... i decided to buy some Olay body wash (purple cap) which is for dry skin (intense moisture). I used it tonight and wow its very rich and creamy and smells nice. I also bought some Jergens non scented body moisturizer.

My skin feels so soft now and I am really liking it. I am going to stop using Neutrogena body scrub (maybe i will use it 2 times a week) and just use this now cause i really need to keep moisture in my skin.

I will let u know how this goes. I just hope i dont really start breaking out more on my back.

I also stopped using Clean and Clear advantage on my face and instead am using Cetaphil.

Today my legs, and sides look a whole lot better. I am seriously trying to stay away from really hot baths in the wintertime. So far so good *keeps fingers crossed*

This stuff is awesome. I know I cant use this in the summer when its really hot but for now its great. I recommend it to anyone... its called Olay Complete (with the light purple cap). I am no longer itching.
