Does anyone else get really dry skin? I'm type 2 for 2 years and on Actos and novo log pen. Nothing seems to help my skin...any suggestions?

Has anyone tried victoza ?

It's expensive but I found that Prada Candy (lotion) works best for me. I have never used a lotion that makes my dry skin so soft in such a short amount of time. The bottle is supposed to last a year. It's around $60.
