New York City and Manhattan, NY
We all experience dry skin from time to time, but chronic dry skin can become problematic. It can itch, crack, or even bleed. Dry skin can be a symptom of another condition, such as eczema. You can take steps to manage skin dryness by avoiding extremely hot showers, regularly using moisturizer, using a humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home, and wearing soft, breathable fabrics.
We can examine your skin to see if the dryness is the sign of another skin problem. We also can provide relief through a prescription-strength ointment or cream. It’s best to get your dry skin evaluated by our dermatologists to rule out any other type of skin condition that could worsen with time.
