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

In brief: 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.
