    Over on "A Patient Voice" community , we're pleased to have Julie Block, President and CEO of the National Eczema Foundation with us.

    She has posted on Tips for Dry Skin ; how to deal with Itchy Skin and Eczema ; and even has a video called "Starting from Scratch " which will help you soothe and tame your skin itches.

    She's only with us a short time--through the end of October so come ask your skin questions!

    Great info for your little ones too!

    My granddaughter who is 10months old, has had dry patches of skin since birth. On her rt arm where it creases she has this red irritation and it looks like it itches like crazy. When we are holding her sometimes she will rub her arm on our shoulder to scratch it. I have started using A & D ointment on it. doesn't seem to be going away, but the itches seems to stop. We can not use lotions on her as this is what made it worse and it has been months since we have put any on. Any suggestions?
