Hydration: Soak in water, use less soap, barely dry and slather in petrolatum base product on a daily basis. There may be some help with presctiption medicaitons. Keep gloves or mittens on the avoid too much scratching. Humidify the room carefully to increase the ambiet moisture in the air. Topical otc anti-itch creams may help. If worse, see your pcp, dermatologist or other health care provider.
