As the weather cools and we turn on our furnaces, our skin can dry out considerably. Those affected with eczema may find this time of year to be quite difficult. Moisturize frequently, at least twice a day, preferably with creams. In general, bathing is better for the skin then showering, as it allows for greater hydration. Try to moisturize within three minutes after drying off. Consider using a cool mist vaporizer, either in your primary room, or having one placed on your furnace system. Of course, it is imperative to keep these clean to avoid bacterial contamination. Wear a hat and gloves when out in cold weather, particularly for extended periods of time. Make sure the feet and toes are protected as well. Keep the lips moisturized to Boyd annoying chapped lips. Petroleum jelly works well, without all the additives which can cause irritation.
Don’t forget to continue checking your skin for new growths and/or abnormal moles, even during the winter months.
