HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dry winter air can sometimes lead to eczema, something Dr. Edwin Robinson is seeing in Henrico.

Eczema may start out as dry, extremely itchy skin.

It cannot be cured, but it can be managed. Avoid things you know can make it flare up.

Ointments and steroid creams can be used as well as antihistamines to stop the itching.
