Doctor can examine: A daily moisturizing cream used 2-4 times a day helps to heal dry skin and to prevent return of dry rashes. Examples: Cetaphil, CeraVe, Eucerin. Some people avoid creams with lanolin, aloe, or fragrances because they are sensitive to the ingredients. If the skin is a bit reddened, starts to itch, or is roughed up by scratching, some people use hydrocortisone cream for a week or so.
