Suggest treatment for skin scales and dryness after grafting

My mom had a skin grafting on her right leg in 2012. After the initial healing, the skin developed an itching problem which still persists. It scales and some seepage occurs. Then the skin starts drying and scales. This goes on in a cycle. What is the cure?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It might be due to immune response following grafting, ask her to use good emollient 4 to 6 times daily over the lesion in order to combat dryness and scaling.

Hope it helps. If you have any other question please do not hesitate to contact us.

Regards,
Dr. Atishay Bukharia
