With Cold Weather Comes Dry and Itchy Skin

This is my 2nd winter here in the USA. So far, I can handle the cold weather but my skin can’t handle it. The coldness caused my skin to be dry and itchy. It started last winter when I noticed that my skin was getting dry and itchy. I tried different lotions and they won’t work. In the last part of winter last year I tried to use petroleum jelly but I had no idea if that was really the one that relieved my itchiness because the weather at that time turned warmer and as I said before, I used it during the last part of winter. So this winter, my itchiness came back again along with the cold weather for more than a month now. It is really annoying especially at night time when I’m in bed. At first I never remembered that the last part of winter of last year I used petroleum jelly on my body and a few days ago I started using it again. Now I’m still observing what’s the outcome of using this petroleum jelly. I hope this itchy dry skin will be gone soon. If anyone knows of a good lotion for dry and itchy skin, please tell me.

    I have the same problem. You could have developed eczema which is a type of dry skin problem. I get it badly on my eyes. I use a prescription that clears it up and the itchiness in just a few days. I have sensitive skin and use a lot of lotions to keep my skin soft.
