Itchy Skin Atlanta GA

Changes in seasons bring about more than just alterations in trees and plants. People who live in areas that experience seasonal weather, such as in Central and North Georgia, often develop a dry, itchy rash during the winter months.

“Winter rash” refers to extremely dry or dehydrated skin in winter. It is caused by low humidity levels, windy weather, cold temperatures, and using central heating.

The skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it has water and natural oils that help it stay moist. Winter rash occurs when the skin loses too much moisture during cold seasons. Cold, dry, windy air can suck the moisture from the skin, causing severely dry patches of skin. These dry patches can occur on any part of the body, but the most common places winter rash forms are on the face, hands, arms, neck, and abdomen.

Symptoms of winter rash include:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Flaking
  • Rough or scaly patches
  • Inflammation
  • Bumps or blisters

Treatment for winter rash will focus on re-moisturizing the skin and soothing irritation that has developed. Many times, home remedies like applying a moisturizer after bathing, reducing the temperature of bathing water, applying coconut oil, and taking all fragrances out of body products will help relieve winter rash. However, for those with severely dry skin that does not get relief from at-home care, a dermatologist can provide the relief you need.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we specialize in treating skin rashes and the irritations that come with them. Often times, skin problems are more than skin deep. We work hard to diagnose and treat the true source of your skin rash problems. Contact our Atlanta dermatology experts at Medical Dermatology Specialists. We will help you find the most effective treatment.

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.
Jeffery D.
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.
