What brand lotion should I get for my dry, itchy skin?

Many helpful brands. There are many brands with products that are good for dry skin. Cetaphil, neutrogena, aveeno, (oatmeal) and vaseline are just a few.
Lubriderm for skin. There are many very good lotions on the market. My patients seem to do better with ones that do not have perfumes and coloring agents in them. Lubriderm is one of my favorite lotions. Aveeno (oatmeal) products are also very useful for dry, itchy skin.
