In general, it is best to match thicker ointments to the driest, flakiest skin.
Some common emollients for the relief
include Oilatum, Balneum, Medi Oil, Diprobase, bath
oils and aqueous cream. Sebexol, Epaderm ointment and Eucerin lotion or cream may also be helpful with itching. Lotions or creams may be applied directly to the skin after bathing to lock in moisture.
