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?
