The cold is coming and stepping between warm, heated areas indoors and cold, dry conditions outside can take a toll on the skin. Warm clothes with a rough texture, especially wool or flannel, can rub on the skin and aggravate symptoms. In addition to causing skin conditions such as dry lips and skin or cracked heels, winter weather can also cause other skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea to flare up. This article will provide some guidance on prevention and treatment to relieve the dry, itchy symptoms often associated with these conditions.
