Dry skin, non stop itching at back, legs. Some relief with moisture therapy lotion. Permanent cure?

For about a month now I have been itching non stop from my back side and all on my legs.I have moisture therapy lotion,it stops the itch briefly and then it starts right back up immediately.I would say its dry skin but I think its more than that,as bumps are starting to appear on random parts of my body.I have two noticeable bumps,one right under my leg,and now one on my back and both bumps do not itch at all.What should I do?

Welcome to healthcare magic

You might be suffering from eczema due to dry skin. You will require a short course of topical steroid application along with oral antihistamines.Get these prescribed by your doctor. A steroid in lotion form will be ideal.

Once the eczema subsides maintain the improvement with regular moisturizer application. A diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids will help. Cod liver oil capsules daily will help. Use luke warm or room temperature water for bath, not too hot. Use less soap.
Hope this helped
Take care
