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.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
