Winter and eczema

Dry skin can be itchy, red and cracked. Here are some tips from Dr. Riahi to keep your skin healthy during the winter:

1. Short showers! Long showers make skin dry.

2. Lukewarm water: hot water strips the skin of moisture. If you have itchy or sensitive skin, hot water will make it worse (Dr. Riahi knows it feels good but beware!)

3. Moisturize! 2-4 times a day is required for people with very dry skin.

If your eczema is acting up, Dr. Riahi is here to help. Come see us in our clinic for any skin issues or concerns.
