Make sure you are using a mild soap and don't scrub skin when you wash. Eliminate all fragrances from anything that touches your skin including laundry detergents. Use a moisturizing cream on body, arms, legs. If that doesn't work, please see your dr. For evaluation. ...Read more

In such cases, the prescribing doctor and/or a dermatologist can recheck the face. If in the meantime, a cream is needed, patients can often wean down to hydrocortisone cream (no prescription needed) while waiting to see the doctor within one week. These steroid creams are for short-term use. ...Read more
