Calamine for dry scaly skin, ok?

Will make it worse: Calamine lotion is drying and cooling. For dry skin there are dozens of ointment and creams OTC.

See a doctor: What is the diagnosis? Use coconut oil for the dry skin. Himalayas calamine is better

Dry skin creams: Look form moisturizers that contain ceramides. Cerave is a brand. The best time to moisturze is right after a bath or shower.

? contact allergy: Antihistamines and calamine won't help, rather moisturizing your skin, steroid creams OTC and good hydration, if that doesn't work, see your doctor
