Winter Itch

Winter itch is a type of eczema or very dry skin which is exacerbated by the lower humidity of the winter months.

This condition can be alleviated by applying moisturizer to wet, freshly showered skin and avoiding long, hot showers which can deplete skin of its natural oils. Diets rich in vitamins A, C, E, flaxseed, canola and fresh vegetable will enhance the skin's ability to retain moisture, and running a humidifier in the bedroom while you sleep is also helpful.

If your winter itch proves too much for these home remedies, contact O'Donoghue Dermatology so that we can determine the best treatment for you.
