Dry skin on hands, elbows, scrotum, etc. Doesn't get much better with lotion. Any advice?

Dry skin on hands, elbows, scrotum, etc. Doesn't get much better with lotion. Any advice?

Such might be eczema: To treat mild or moderate eczema, Hydrocortisone 1% cream (use a thin coat on the rash, twice a day, for 5-10 days) is cheap, found at most stores and works well. A daily moisturizing cream (Cetaphil, CeraVe, Eucerin, etc.) used 2-4 times a day helps to heal eczema and to prevent return of the rash. Avoid soaps. The scrotum needs more careful attention. A dermatologist can help, with other creams. ...Read more

Skin lesions: May just be dry skin (try moisturizing cream several times a day; avoid very hot baths/showers & harsh soaps). Might be sun damage from too much exposure; see doc for evaluation; actinic keratoses are easily treated via many methods. Use sunscreen when outdoors, even on cloudy days. If blisters form, may be recurrence of shingles (not common) but best treated early. ...Read more

Dry skin?: From your description, the problem appears to be what is called keratosis pilaris. Skin tags have a stem. I would suggest that you try applying a moisturizer on your body within 3 mins after bathing and perhaps another application with or without bathing 12 hrs later and see if you can see improvement after about a week. If not, consult a dermatologist. Avoid scented or anti-bacterial soap. ...Read more

Can hypothyroidism lead to bruising easily and dry skin and dry scabs that won't heal I have 2 small ones on arm my mom & aunt have hypothyroidism?

Yes, for dry skin: Untreated hypothyroidism can certainly cause dry skin, but it would be unlikely to cause bruising or scabs. I see that you are on advil, (ibuprofen) this can contribute to bruising. Considering your family history, it would be reasonable to get a free T4 and TSH level done to look at your thyroid function. ...Read more

The zinc oxide creams with vitamin a and vitamin d will also help healing ...Read more
