I have very dry skin on my face only. Have tried oils, creams, lotions - some prescription. Nothing works. Should I try ammonium lactate skin cream?

Dry facial skin: 2 questions 1. Is it dryness? Conditions that can have flaking and scaling on the face include seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and others. 2. If it is dryness, it's important to eliminate things that would contribute to it, such as harsh soaps, washcloths, extensive exfoliation, fragrances/dyes, etc. Most ammonium lactate lotions are too irritating to the face.

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

The: The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as I can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure.
Take care. ...Read more
