Patient Comments: Dry Skin - Causes

What is the cause of your dry skin?

Comment from: Ju, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 18

I have had itchy skin for 4 weeks now and was given Celestone-M 2 weeks ago. The cream has helped the itchy rash on my chest and lower back but it is still itchy on upper legs inside thighs, arms, and stomach. It is driving me mad. I am not using soap except the occasional QV soap for under arms, etc. The itch is driving me made especially at work.
