Dry Skin

Category: Rated G

This is by Gregory J. Scott [home@gregscott.com] who says it is a true story.


I get very dry skin each winter. Over the years, I have complained to my doctor about this, and each time, the doctor would recommend Keri Lotion. But it never helped.

Finally, I complained: “You’ve recommended Keri Lotion year after year, but it never helps!”

The doctor asked how much lotion I used, and when I told him, he gave me some additional instructions:

  1. Use it twice or even three times a day.
  2. Slather it on. Don’t be stingy.

Well, I followed these new instructions, and my dry skin was completely cured within two weeks.

However, several weeks later, I noticed when I was shaving that I had very bad dandruff. As I shaved, I studied my head in the mirror and pondered if I should try the Keri Lotion to cure that problem too. Would it adversely affect my scalp? Finally I decided against it, since to commit hairy Keri would be against my religious beliefs.
