Remedies for dry skin
Q. My skin is always very dry and itchy. What is the best treatment? Could it be something other than just dry skin?
A. Dry skin is a common problem, especially in areas with cold winters and dry indoor heat. Typical signs of dry skin are surface roughness with itching and cracking of the skin. It is more common with aging, since skin loses its elasticity and ability to hold moisture over time. In addition, frequent showers and hand washing can cause dry skin.
