One of the dermatologists that I had consulted recommended Cetaphil in lieu of my usual bath soap and facial wash. I was skeptical at first since I knew very little of the brand ('googling' wasn't even a verb back in '98, lol), but I tried it anyway. And lo and behold - after a few weeks of use, the dry, flaky patches were gone, the itching has subsided, and flare-ups weren't as sporadic as before.
This is the main reason why I have a penchant for Cetaphil products, particularly the Gentle Skin Cleanser.

When using it without water, you simply apply a generous amount on your skin and gently rub. Afterwards, wipe the excess with a cotton ball or a piece of tissue. On the other hand, when used with water, you simply apply it on your skin, rub it gently, and rinse when done.
