Brief Answer:
petroleum jellies.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again :)

There are some petroleum jellies which can help in dry and plumpy skin like vaseline.
Or any skin creams containing glycerine can also help.

What dose of angeliq do you use?

Increasing the dose can increase the risk of side effects. So dose increment has to be considered cautiously.

In my opinion, its better to use a topical cream for dry skin.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to discuss further.
Thanks.

Thank you for your reply.
I take the minimum dose of 1 mg / 2 mg ostradiol / Drospirenone. Can this be increased? or combined with another? Please advise. I deo believe the benefits far out weigh the risks especially in terms of memory.

Kind Regards

Brief Answer:
dose increment not recommended.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.
Sorry for the late response.

Dear XXXXXXX

I do not recommend increasing the dose beyond 1mg estradiol/2mg drosperinone.

This can lead to many side effects.

In my opinion, the use of topical creams which I mentioned above should be the better choice.

The more hormones you, the more you subject yourself to side effects. These can be very much bothersome in long term.

Hope you find my suggestions of some help.

I wish you good health.

Take care.
Thanks.
