Dermatologist Questions Itching

Does calamine work for dry skin?

I have extremely dry and sensitive skin which itches particularly during the winters. Do you think it is a good idea to apply calamine on my skin?

No it dries it out further!
It will dry it more
Calamine is a drying agent, so I would say no.
