This cold winter weather is leaving me with dry, itchy skin... not just my hands, but my legs and arms, too. Can anyone recommend a good treatment of some kind? I can't slather lotion on every hour!

Hi and welcome to the board! Try an oatmeal bath soaking treatment; there are a number of them on the market and oatmeal really does sooth the itch.

I know Vaseline always has some good lotions for dry skin.

Winter is the worst for me and my feet and being 50+ takes it's toll :(

Anyway, I was reading some reviews on products for dry feet and one was for plain Vaseline! Put it on and wear socks to bed and you'll wake up with baby-butt soft feet. I've tried so many from Dr Scholls to Burts Bees and they work to some degree. But I'm planning on trying plain old Vaseline next.

I get dry in the winter too...I think it's unavoidable! But I do some work with Eucerin and just started using their Calming Creme as a daily moisturizer. It has been a life-saver! It has oatmeal and soothing moisturizers to help prevent dry, itchy skin before it starts. I recommend it to anyone looking to soothe their itchy skin this winter.
