Xerosis is a common complaint in patients attending Dermatology clinics. Twenty patients with xerosis, irrespective of cause were enrolled in the study, treated with urea free lotion Dewderm (R) as the only form of therapy and the response was noted. In 13 (65%) patients good results were obtained, specially in senile xerosis, idiopathic xerosis and asteatotic eczema. It is quite safe and may be advocated as first line of therapy in xerotic skin disorders. Further it can miniize the excessive use of topical steroids specially in wide spread disease
