If you have already tried all remides , and still you have dry itchy skin than at this stage it would be ideal for you to start with

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, such as fluoxetine that may help reduce various types of skin itching.

Finally , Phototherapy is final option that involves exposing your skin to certain wavelengths of ultraviolet light. Multiple sessions are usually scheduled until the itching is under control.

This will help to overcome your skin issue .

Consult your skin dr for such treatment please .

Thank you .
