    NL uses the CeraVe line of products for dry skin, especially the cream in a jar. Slather on after a bath and allow to absorb before dressing. For lighter moisturizing the CeraVe lotion for dry skin in a pump bottle works great.

    As noted by the SCI nurse, above, some health issues have dry skin as a symptom. Have you had a general physical lately.

    That happens. I know my PCP quit taking new patients years ago. But there were others in her practice who were younger, newer and they were taking new patients.
