I am currently in 30s and having very dry skin since childhood. I used to apply moisturizing creams but still there is no considerable change. During the winter there is extreme dryness that cause itches. I think this is something related to heredity as some of my family members having the same problem. Is there any treatment that can completely cure this disease? I heard about some hormone therapy but not having details of it.. Can someone give me a solution for my problem..

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There is no such effective treatment.
Always use moisturiser cream as dry skin is susceptible to infections.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
