Treating eczema

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating eczema at Parham Primary Care.

With cold weather comes dry and itchy skin.   Several easy things can help alleviate this bothersome and irritating problem.

Cold air carries less water than warm air so you lose a lot of moisture to the environment.   When you take a hot bath or shower your skin pores open and it accelerates the water loss from your skin.

Prevention can be helped by using moisturizer, turn down the temperature in the shower, & drink lots of water.
