Skin Itching on legs...

My mom have been in pain with this problem for a while now. Her skin along the legs(primarily) get itchy and even a gentle hand on it will leave them red(ish). She is getting this on all of her body but legs primarily. She is noticing it mostly when she gets back home after coming back from market/walk etc. She has seen doctor previously for no good, unfortunately don't have the prescription presently. Can share more info if required. Please let me know.

elderly people with time develop dryness of skin with age progression. can be due to medications or diseases like thyroid. pls avoid soap for bathing. use cetaphil moisturising lotion on daily basis. she may need anti allergic medications and creams from time to time. if u are interested i can review her prescriptions and give treatment .
