Customer: My skin has been dry for quite some time as I have hypothyroidism but it has changed to peeling the last month or so
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Could you please post a photo for me on this page?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't know how to do that - sorry
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 months ago.

No problem

Any redness to your arms or just dry peeling skin?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I used Gentle Nature baby eczema cream on my arms and has really helped - no more peeling so far so will continue to use that and hopefully will be a long term fix
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 months ago.

OK

I would also recommend vitamin E cream as a way to keep the problem from recurring
