Depending on the: Product it could be harmless or toxic if swallowed. The American Association of Poison Control Centers can be helpful 24/7. They can be reached at (800) 222-1222. Be prepared to provide them with name of specific product used.

How often can I use almactin body lotion? It helps keep my skin clear and not dry. I just don't want to wear spf during the summer. Similar lotions?
As often as you wish: No limit. Whatever feels best. SPF is not something you wear!!! Sun Protective Factor is a number which indicates sun protection. SPF 30, or at least 15, is as effective as any higher #. Sunscreens are added to many moisturizers that you are sure to like. Try some. You will like them.
Even if: Gluten causes only gastrointestinal problem for those who are truly sensitive to it. Even gluten-containing body lotion would not have bothered a gluten-sensitive person unless he or she decides to lick his/her own skin repeatedly.
Dry skin?: If you are asking for a treatment for dry skin, then I prefer a good moisturizer. May exist, but vaseline mixed with water and coconut oil can help with severe dryness. Burt's bees is a pretty good brand if you specifically want a milk lotion, which they offer.
Depends: You can try amlactin, cetaphil, or eucerin lotion-remember everyone respond differently-one may works well for you, but not necessary for others or vice versa. If not work, you can see dermatologist.
