Winter Rashes

Woman scratching her back isolatedWe have had a relatively warm November and December this year. Eventually we are going to have some cold weather and we will have to turn on the heat to stay warm. Heat tends to dry our skin causing itching and sometimes scaly and patchy rashes. To prevent this try not to turn the temp up more than 68-70 degrees F. Don’t take very hot or frequent baths or showers. Use moisturizing soaps when bathing such as Dove or Oil of Olay. Apply moisturizers after bathing such as Cereve or Cetaphil lotion or cream. And finally, invest in a room humidifier which might help moisten the air. Following the above tactics might just help prevent the “winter itch.”
