Skin allergy

Patient : I have acute dry skin all over particularly my hands are hard and have cuts. My feet are itchy. I am taking Thelma H 80mg for HBP and glucophage to control borderline sugar. Are these the cause of severe dryness or do I have some internal deficiency. Could high blood sugar be the cause? Please advise as I am suffering this over a year now.
Symptoms:  My hands are dry and itchy. My toes are itchy. I feel some relief when I wash and apply cream but then it starts again. I have been applying steroid cream but it is temporary relief.
