Please advice: It started with a red spot on the front of neck, & after few days similar spots appeared on shoulders, armpits, check, stomach, & sides, later appeared on thighs. The skin got very dry & itchy in nature.
After taking shower if no moistouriser is applied it feels that my skin will torn apart. Upon scratching on the patches, small dead skin peels off.
There are also dry cracks on my palm & between fingers.
Waiting for advice.

  • Waiting for advice. Put something on it. Something for itching, since you itch. Something for dryness, since you are dry. And stop scratching. If that does not work, then go see a doctor and let them prescribe a medication for your problem.
