    Miss KT says her skin has gotten really dry and itches like crazy. She hasn't changed soaps or anything, and can't get into the dermatologist on her next visit home. What can she put on to make her skin stop itching so badly?

    Thanks in advance!

    My Mom gave me a recipe for the world's best lotion ever - Onyxx has superdry skin, and a friend's son has eczema - works on both.

    1 tub Vitamin E cream
    1 tub Vaseline
    1 bottle (normal size) baby lotion

    Mix it all together - works great by itself and really awesome right after a shower!

    Sebamed face/body wash is pH balanced and left my skin soft and moist. Cocoa butter lotion works great too. Also, tell her to drink more water.

    Drink more water and take an essential oils supplement that has evening primrose, borage and flaxseed oils. Very effective.

    Shower every day and apply a non greasy, non-fragrance lotion of her choice. Many doctors will tell you not to shower every day...however, I suffered with eczema my entire life until I was 18. At that point I took control over my own health and began showering daily and applying lubriderm lotion religiously. Instant relief...I've rarely had a problem since.

    Best of luck.

    Aquaphor. You can find it in the baby section if it's not with other lotions.
