Eczema is a chronic problem for many children and adults. It is characterized by dry, itchy skin and a visible rash. Even though flare-ups can be triggered at any time of year, the winter time proves to be most problematic for my children and their skin.
Wintertime brings cold and dry air outside, and forced hot air inside. These factors can put skin at high rish for eczema flare-ups. The lack of sunlight and decreased levels of Vitamin D may also affect the skin and contribute to eczema.
What are the symptoms of eczema?
Dry, itchy, red, inflamed skin
Eczema in children is commonly seen on the face, around the eyes, inside the elbows and on the backs of the knees
Adults commonly experience eczema on their necks, elbows and backs of knees.
What can you do to combat eczema in the wintertime?
- Keep skin warm and protected when outside.
- Apply thick, protective moisturizer
- Consider using a humidifier to add moisture to the air indoors
- Consider asking your doctor about Vitamin D supplements
- Bath and moisturize regularly, using topical medications when needed
