Hello and welcome to Just Answer

Sometimes itching of the skin can be a symptom of a more serious underlying medical condition such as liver disease. You may want to have bloodwork done at your Drs office such as a basic blood panel to rule out serious causes.

Itchy skin and dry hands are common this time of the year especially in a dry or cold climate. There are many good over the counter products. One of the best is Eucerin cream. Look for the jar with the screw on cap. This is especially good for dry hands.
