Hello Anita, Thank you for the question.
Weather changes are one of the things that affect skin moisture. In cold areas, air humidity decreases and can cause skin to become drier. Skin that is dry and loses moisture can peel and feel sore. This condition can happen to anyone, especially if it is not balanced with hydration from the body.
Eczema is an inflammatory condition of the skin that occurs chronic / chronic, which generally has occurred since the sufferer was a child. Usually eczema sufferers also have a history of other atopy such as allergic rhinitis. Skin rashes in eczema sufferers generally appear in the skin folds, in the form of skin that is red, thickened, peeled, dry, and feels itchy or irritated. Cold air is one of the triggers that can cause eczema recurrence. Therefore eczema is also one of the possible conditions that you experience. However, usually the complaints that occur on the skin do not only occur when the weather changes. To determine the cause of your complaint, you should consult a dermatologist. The doctor will ask further questions about your complaint and perform an examination of your skin. The next treatment will be given to you after confirming the cause.
Meanwhile, if you are traveling to cold areas, please use a skin moisturizer and consume more water. Avoid scrubbing the skin too hard when showering and use mild soap.
Hope this information is helpful.
