VERY DRY SKIN IN WINTER

My skin gets extremely dry at this time of the year. Resulting in tiny bumps on my arms, back, stomach and thighs. My skin feels so dry it burns (as if I' m holding a flame to it). I generally have a sensitive skin.

I' ve tried bathing in baby oil or putting it on after a bath. Changed from using Dove soap to mild baby wash.

Please suggest a cream /moisturiser / soap which may help.

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Ask your pharmacist to mix a cream containing 1% Hydrocortisone and Aquascream, 300g. Use this for no longer than a month. Continue using the Dove soap.

Kind regards
