Hi HannaFromLondon. It shouldn't be much to worry about by the sounds of it I think you have eczema. I have it. All you need to do is keep your body parts moisturized. If they start to itch think about something else and keep your hands busy. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Thank you all for your advice! I did suffer from eczema when I was younger, but nothing like this! It's just sooo irritating and it's easier said then done to 'not scratch' lol :( thank you all once again I will try looking for the cream tomorrow when I go shopping. Thanks :) x
