Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
have you seen a doctor yet?
you need blood testing to check your thyroid hormone levels. high thyroid hormone levels can cause dry skin and itchy skin.
benadryl tends to cause dry mouth and dry mucous membranes and in some patients can cause dry skin.
you should get your thyroid levels checked to make sure they are normal
have you tried moisturizers like Aquafore? or Eucerin? or Gold Bond?
how many mg of benadryl are you taking a day?
have you tried any other antihistamines such as allegra or claritin or zyrtec?
one pill of benadryl is 25mg
and should not be causing you such dry skin.
have you seen a dermatologist about this dry skin?
do you live in a cold climate? this can cause dry skin.
do you have excessive anxiety symptoms? this can cause you to be extra worried about your skin and magnify small skin symptoms.
pure hyaluronic acid serum is a very good skin moisturizer. I have used it before myself.
