How to treat dryness on the face?
Hello, I am a 15 years old female. I have a dry face. Dryness on my face is mostly on the chin and around the mouth. It happens in winter even after applying moisturizer. Can anyone tell me how can I treat dryness on the face?
@roshali Hello, In most cases, dry skin responds well to lifestyle measures, such as using moisturizers and avoiding long, hot showers and baths. Sometimes dry skin leads to dermatitis, which causes red, itchy skin. In these cases, treatment may include hydrocortisone-containing lotions. Your doctor may prescribe wet dressings to help prevent infection. Measures like avoiding harsh face wash, moisturizing right after a bath, limiting your bath time, and using suitable fabric can help your skin. If dry skin causes itching, apply cool compresses to the area. If these measures don't relieve your symptoms or if your symptoms worsen, see your doctor or consult a dermatologist.
