Hi,

I would recommend you to get your thyroid function tests and serum IgE levels checked as these are related to dryness. Also, apply cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily along with frequent and regular application of a moisturizing cream containing white soft paraffin 2-3 times in a day.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
