NURSE'S CORNER:  Dry skin - Wintertime is harsh on our skin.  Try these ideas to soften the rough spots:

Moisturize often - especially when the skin is damp.

Take shorter showers with lukewarm water as hot water drys out the skin.

Skip scented soap and alcohol based products like cologne, toner, etc. as they can irritate the skin.

Avoid rough fabric that can make skin feel itchy.

Using a humidifier can add moisture to the dry air.

Severely dry and itchy skin can be caused by an allergic reaction, skin disorder, or more serious condition.  Visit your health care provider for more information if the condition doesn't improve.
