DRY FLAKY SCALY SKIN
I need a solution to my dry flaky scaly skin. I' ve tried everything - the best aqueous creams on the market nothing seems to help. I' ve even mixed bio tissue oil with the aqueous cream - still dry. Please help it' s getting worse. I have had this problem since I was 3 years old I am now 34!

Thank you,

Dear Sue
You may have an underlying eczema causing this dryness - try taking evening primrose oil supplements? Alternatively you should see a dermatologist.
