I have always used Eucerin creme for my hands and it works wonders. I have excessively dry pacthes on my legs so I thought I'd try it on them. I put the Eucerin on just the patches before I went to bed and the very next day, the whole side of my left thigh was swollen, red, hot to the touch and very itchy. I'm using a cortizone product to try to reduce the itching but why in the world would this cause a problem when I have used it on my hands for years? I can feel the heat of the rash through my jeans, it's a little frightening. Maybe you guys have some answers to this? Thank you and have a good day, AngelView Thread
