I have one ankle that is very dry and itchy all the time. I have tried Sorbelene cream and it make my ankles itch and burn. I also tried quartozone creams and it keeps coming back. I have tried paw paw ointment and that makes it burn and itch, and a number of other types of creams that I have at home. If someone has a suggestion I would love to hear it as it wakes me up at night when it seems to be worse. thanks

Have you tried the coconut oil at the store, the kind that you cook with?

My husband uses Eucerin calming itch relief and works very well for him.

My lower legs are so dry they have their own diagnosis. I tried rubbing the inside of a banana skin all over them and they were smooth and soft for three days afterwards.

Some compound in the banana soothes skin. I put some banana on the eczema on my hand and it went away. That could be a coincidence, I don't know.

It is most likely an allergy. I would see an NAET practitioner and have the problem eliminated permanently. It is energy medicine.
www.naet.com and youtube NAET, google also.

1. Drink more water so will be hydrated.
2. Take in more vit B either as a supplement or via dark leafy green veg's or both
3. More Omega 3 fatty acids - preferably with oil fish like salmon, herring, sardines, mackerel or supplements or both

All 3 should make a big difference for you. They did for me!

I had the same problem. Apply ordinary petroleum jelly (cheap brands do fine) just before you shower. Apply generously. By the time you're finished with your shower, the greasiness will also be finished; you will just find your ankles soft with itchiness gone.

For dry skin, we like a product called "Corn Huskers Lotion", it helps protect against dry cracking skin, soothes our itches. It's lid & label are yellow & is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson Co., Inc. in Skillman, NJ, USA (here's a toll free # from the label: 1-866-344-4848, or we've had no trouble finding it any most any drugstores, & at Wal-mart.

Hope this helps you. (the front label says "Heavy Duty Hand Treatment", but we use it on other body areas, other than just our hands, when needed.
