Aveeno cream is used for moisturising dry, sensitive, scaly or itchy skin, for example in conditions such as eczema, ichthyosis and xeroderma.
This lotion should be used when you have an irritable and dry skin surface. This treatment contains a mixture of colloidal oatmeal and Shea butter and is enriched with Vitamin A and E, which help in nourishing affected areas.
Glycerin is absorbed into the skin where it works by attracting water to itself, helping to retain water in the skin surface. Liquid paraffin leaves a layer of oil on the skin surface that prevents water evaporating from the skin.

Itchy skin has many possible causes. If you have other symptoms (such as a rash or swelling) this might give you an idea of the cause. Skin conditions that can cause itching include:
Most emollients can be used safely and effectively with no side effects. However, burning, stinging, redness, or irritation may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor promptly.
Moisturisers like Aveeno should be applied frequently to prevent the skin drying out. You can also apply this lotion as often as is needed, particularly after washing. Some people may need to apply moisturisers several times a day.
Keep this lotion out of the reach and sight of children. Store in a cool dry place, for external use only.
