Getting itchy rah in winter season. Is this eczema?
Last winter I started getting itchy on the belly by my navel. The itch traveled to my left side leaving spots about 1 long and 1/4 wide, they look like dry skin/or eczema . The rash itself is not visible but can be felt with the hand . This winter the rash is back and seems to have picked up where it left off last spring. Now the rash has nearly made a ring around my waist . The pause during summer, and the pattern of travel are odd to me. Does this sound familiar to you?
The pattern of rash your suffering from is known as xerotic eczema,just apply plenty of emolleint and use mild soaps like dove and apply a mild steroid like flutivate for a few days.Nothing much to worry.
