Welcome to HCM.
1. You must avoid frequent wash of your hand and try to avoid soap/ detergent. Apply a Hand lotion/ Petrolium jelly/ vaseline/ Urea 20% cream on your hand 3 to 4 times daily.
2. Apply a medicated shampoo (e.g. Selsun/ Nizoral
) on your body for 15 minutes before shower 2/3 times weekly for 2 weeks.
3. Increased amount of water intake will do almost nothing for your dry skin
, so no need to take much.
consult / visit a dermatologist
after 2 weeks for further management.
