I Struggle With Very Dry And Itchy Skin, Especially In The Winter. I'd Like To Know What Other People Use To Calm And Hydrate Their Skin.

I Struggle With Very Dry And Itchy Skin, Especially In The Winter. I'd Like To Know What Other People Use To Calm And Hydrate Their Skin.

Due to my diabetes and fibromyalgia, the skin on my legs is constantly itchy and dry all year round but in the winter it is worse. I have tried many lotions but none have helped. I would like to hear from others, if they deal with this, and what they have tried that has helped.

The gold bond worked for me after just 1 use but it is very thick so I have to take the bottle apart to get the lotion. I can actually feel it working!

Try Eucerin (they even have a diabetic formula) ,it's rich and creamy. This moisturizes your skin for hours and helps stop the itch. It's a little "pricey" but well worth it. Good luck and gentle hugs Donna .

Aveeno Oatmeal lotion is my miracle! I love how it's so moisturizing and healing without being greasy. You can get very good deals on line! I get 2 big bottles at a time. Oatmeal is very good for the skin for all different problems, dryness, itching, and it's even healing. :)

Alo Vera and vitamin K bar to wash. And oatmeal with menthol cream. If bad put oatmeal in bathtub and soak.

Thanks but one runs in my bedroom all the time. My massage therapist dropped off a bottle of Gold Bond lotion specifically for people with diabetes. It has helped so much!
