Dry skin/eczema: It's recommended to use plain white moisturizers two times a day, use less warm wate for bath or showers, use soaps or bath gel for sensitive skin ( better to go with in colored and non fragrant or non scented, also gently tapping skin to dry than rubbing with towel is also recommended. See your doctor or skin specialist if not improving, sooner if worse.
