Cold Weather Eczema Tips

Cold, dry winter weather is hard on sensitive skin conditions like eczema. 

Consider these precautions to minimize flare-ups:

  • Make sure that your indoor humidity is adequate.  Achieving a level of 35-50 % humidity is usually recommended.
  • Consider more frequent moisturizing due to the relative dryness in the air.
  • Remember to use sunscreen when outdoors, even on the cold, dark winter days.
  • Dress in layers for warmth, but with loose clothing to let your skin breathe.
  • Wear gloves or mittens when outdoors to protect your hands from chapping.
  • If your clothes get wet from outdoor activities, change into dry clothing as soon as possible.

For questions and concerns about eczema and other chronic skin conditions in infants, older children, and adults, see Dr. Rowe and get the answers that you need. 

Same Day Appointments are Available.
