I was born with anemia, which I don't think that has anything to do with it, but it might i guess. I have horribly dry skin, I have scale-like sections all over my legs, and patches of really dry, bumpy skin everywhere else, it cracks and bleeds and lotion doesn't help at all. Most of the time it just burns, when applied to my face my skin tingles and burns horribly... I have used all different kinds. Fragrance Free because I thought maybe it was an allergic reaction for it to burn like that. All of them have caused burning. Eucerin dry skin therapy is dermatologist recommended and claims to be non irritating, but i was still irritated. My skin is very sensitive though, if i scratch it becomes red and welps up. Everyone just thinks it is dry skin, and i used that elidel stuff for a while with no result. I would love to go to a dermatologist, but people do not understand the pain, and think I am trying to get attention I guess. I have had this as long as I can remember, and thought I would check here to see if anyone else has ever experienced this... Anything would help, until I can convince someone that this is not normal.

Hi, Here are two sites that you should do some research on. Especially about candida and colon cleansing. The body heals from the inside out. Very good reading. Please check it out. http://www.annboroch.com/candida.htmhttp://www.healingdaily.com/

  • I've also had dry skin my entire life. It is red, scaley, bumpy and becomes very itchy during the winter. That's when it seems to get the worst. I also have tried every kind of lotion and nothing really clears it up. I would also want to go to the dermatologist, but nothing ever seems to work. Your not the only one with this problem, and I would love to get your input on different products to try. Thanks

  • Very old post I know but I have the exact same problem and I just can't see it being 'dry skin' especially since the back of my hands are rough to the touch (and yes red and kinda scaley and around the knuckles my skin cracks a bit)Anyone found a good product or gotten any good answers on this?

  • The commercial lotions and creams have too many ingredients and are never even close to fully disclosed. Try using an organic food grade oil, sparingly, on a less sensitive part of your skin to test it. Try safflower, coconut, almond, or olive oil. Avoid products with mineral oil. Sometimes the petro based products cause problems. If you can't eat it don't put it on your skin. Feel Better.

  • hydrocortisone Cream may help ask your pharmacy. I just found out a few days ago that my daughter has exezma (please excuse spelling if it's wrong) I have been useing that for her skin problem, just a little bit has been clearing it up really well.
