Dry skin on face, burning sensation. Tried lotions, facial creams, natural oils. Permanent cure?

Okay, so my face has gotten dry extremely quickly in a matter of day. I ve tried so many things, lotion, facial cream, calamine lotion, natural oils , water, and a few other things and nothing has helped. It actually burned extremely baldy. Is anything else good to use? My friend told me to try sperm . Is that a good idea? I really need help. It hurts so bad.

Dermatologist 's  Response
To treat your dry skin, use a mild soap free oatmeal or glycerin based cleanser. Never use extremely warm or hot water to bathe or clean face. Always dab the wet area with towel and immediately apply an intensive moisturiser to lock the moisture( preferably squalene based). Initially to treat extremely dry burning itchy skin, use a mild steroid cream over face for few days. Once the skin normalises, stick to the routine mentioned above. Do not try weird home remedies to treat dryness! Hope that answers your query. Take care.
