Medications that Aggravate Skin

Some medications can cause dry skin by reducing the skin hydration making it porous so moisture escapes.

Common medications that cause dry skin are diuretics (i.e. hydrochlorothiazide or furosemide, Retin-A), cholesterol medication (i.e. pravastatin and simvastatin, and Accutane).

Hand-foot syndrome (palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia) is a side effect of some cancer treatments and drugs.

Dermal Therapy Extra Strength Body Lotion and other deep penetrating moisturizers soften and smooth skin making it feel more comfortable.

All of our moisturizers can help restore moisture. In addition, urea can help improve the efficacy of cortisone meaning you can use less cortisone cream or lotion and achieve the same results.
