I have MRSA is there any type lotion I can use to keep my skin moisturizer?

MRSA: Where do you have the skin infection? You could wash your skin with an anti microbial soap such as dial or hibiclens and then put on any moisturizer that you like. Use a new tube or bottle of it so that the moisturizer is uncontaminated. More importantly, MRSA is not a permanent condition (eg. Like herpes) so it can be cured. Some people are carriers of MRSA in the nose which requires treatment. ...Read more

Does it matter what lotion or moisturizer should I use for my face (with acne)?

Cetaphil, cerave, neutrogena and aveeno (oatmeal) all make great moisturizers that fall into this category. ...Read more

My hands are really dry and every time I put lotion on it doesn't moisturizer also every time I put my hand under water it burns really bad.

My hands are really dry and every time I put lotion on it doesn't moisturizer also every time I put my hand under water it burns really bad.

Hand eczema.: You are describing a common phenomenon that occurs more often in winter due to the colder, drier weather and the more frequent hand washing. Lotion is not hydrating enough based on your symptoms of burning. You need a very hydrating ointment such as vaseline petroleum jelly with application of white cotton gloves over it. Apply nightly before bedtime and see a doctor if little of no improvement. ...Read more

Bar soap or a cleanser to clean my face? And moisturizer or lotion for very dry, acne prone skin? My skin always feels dry and tight!

Good skin care: Although visiting a dermatologist to determine the cause (hormonal, skin care, topical reaction, etc) may be the best first step. A variety of skin care regimens ranging from gentle cleansers with appropriate moisturizers and exfoliation with the possible prescription of oral or topical retinoids may be a good beginning.

After cleansing I know I need to seal in hydration with a moisturizing cream. Is there any benefit to layering a lotion underneath the cream?

After cleansing I know I need to seal in hydration with a moisturizing cream. Is there any benefit to layering a lotion underneath the cream?

duplicating efforts: Moisturizing lotion is lighter than a cream. So adding lotion first, and moisturizer is not going to make the effects any better. In fact you may be somewhat duplicating effort. If you're using a moisturizing cream at night, you probably will not need the lotion. A serum would be better to use in place of a lotion, if you're going to combine it with the moisturizing cream. This depends how dry your skin is. ...Read more
