Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. itch due to dry skin cannot be treated with steroids. Please apply calasoft lotion in day and white petroleum jelly in night. Also take anti histamine capsule like capsule doxepin 75 mg daily in night. This combination may give you relief. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
