  • Vasaline works good on really dry skin maybe try that. I wish I knew something that would definately help.

  • What constitutes "everything?" Have you tried petroleum jelly? Could it be an allergic reaction? If it is, you could try hydrocortisone.

  • my question is that if it's not acne why are you treating it with stuff that is for acne?

    i'd say get a moisturizer and try that, it's just a dry patch of skin, like when you have a really bad cold and a runny nose.

  • Do you have Euceril? If not, Vaseline Intensive Care might work

  • Believe it or not Carmex (the lip balm) works great for this - is sounds like the skin is chaffed.
