Does it itch?
How bad is the itch?
Does that mean that you will be able to control the itch?

It usually happens in the background of stress
and when the stress is relieved, it gets better
It usually goes away if not itched
It gets worse with itching
Do you have a history of dry skin?

yes i have a dry skin
It works like wonder
I will make a few recommendations for dry skin
Avoid using scrubs and medicated soaps on dry skin
Usually anti-bacterial medicines make it worse
i am using cutiefresh soaps
Is that a medicated soap?
its a general soap suggested by skin specalist
Also avoid wetting the dry skin repeatedly
It may make it worse
Take hygienic food and clean drinking water to avoid stomach infections, for which you may need antibiotics and it will make dry skin worse
i didnt get you doctor.
These recommendation will help you in long run
are you sugessting me to take the antibiotics or no?
Which part you did not understand?
No donot take antibiotics
May use non-medicated lotions to help with the dry skin
what about the dry skin on the left hand? any recommendations
It will go away in some time
Try local steroid cream to control itch
Controlling itch is the most important part
any cream names?
You will need a written prescription for it
