The rashes caused by dryness usually respond well to over the counter hydrocortisone cream for up to 2 weeks, no longer, and stop using it if the rash clears quicker. After that switch to a heavy moisturizer lotion to prevent recurrance.

go on a lower dose id say. i listened to beentheredonethat about using steroids (hydrocortisone is a mild steroid). it brought inflammation down but caused thinning of skin and stretch marks which is a side effect of steroid use.

definately moisturize 2x a day and stop hot baths or showers
