Is there any cream for general skin disorders or itches ?

This all depends on what is causing the itch. If it's minor topical dermatitis, try benadryl or hydrocortisone cream. Calamine also works in some cases. Like a previous poster mentioned, trying Aveeno products helps if the itch is caused by dry skin. Something that I had found that works for some people is emu oil. Yes, a bit on the odd side, but several people swear by it, and I have used it with success on my 1 year old's diaper rash.

Now if the itch is something more serious (ie: psoriasis or eczema) you'll need to see the doctor for potent medication. I have a slight case of psoriasis and use a cream called triamcinolone. This works for me, but might not for you. There are several meds out there, depending on the cause of your itch and/or skin disorder.Is there any cream for general skin disorders or itches ?
If you choose to try hydrocortisone cream, use sparingly. Overuse can eventually lead to thinning of the skin. Report Abuse

see a dermatologist..there are all types of itches and rashes, and you will want to make sure you have the right ointment. other than that, neosporin works wonders for a lot of rash conditions, and will assist in healing your skin as well
Hydrocortisone cream is for itchiness. Also, Aveeno makes a lotion with menthol in it that is supposed to help with itching.
yeah you can get antifungal cream that usually does it. you can buy it in most drug store or dept store.
