Generalized itching of the skin during the colder, winter months is commonly referred to as “winter itch”. This skin condition is caused by dry skin and is seen commonly in those with a history of eczema, allergies, and/or asthma. Because the humidity is low when temperatures drop, and because people use central heat to warm their homes during the cold months, dry skin conditions tend to worsen during winter. Dry skin is characterized by a lack of the appropriate amount of water in the most superficial layer of the skin. In winter, because moisture is lacking in the air from humidity the skin on the arms, hands, and lower legs can be severely affected by dry skin. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman is committed to providing patients with the highest level of care to treat the extreme dry skin condition known as winter itch.

Scratching dry skin can further irritate the skin condition. Because extremely dry skin is often incredibly itchy, “winter itch” can worsen and cause skin infections. For many people with winter itch, simple prevention and treatment measures are very effective in the treatment of dry skin. However, some people find that they need medical interventions in order to withstand the effects of winter itch. Topical steroid creams are often prescribed to patients whose winter itch is so severe and bothersome that it affects their daily lives.

If you suffer from the extreme side effects of winter itch, contact Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta to schedule an appointment. Dr. Weisman and her staff are committed to helping patients find relief from their mildest to most severe skin conditions. Dr. Jamie Weisman will show you what it means to have a doctor who is an advocate for your health, as she will stick with you until you have found a long term solution to relieve your winter itch.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
