Got the Winter Itch?

By January 7, 2008

Follow me on:

Many allergic skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, can get much worse in the wintertime. Most people love taking extremely hot showers when it's cold outdoors, which tends to dry out the skin. In addition, when the air is cold and dry outside, and warm and dry inside, the skin tends to lose moisture through evaporation into the air. Dryness worsens eczema, and even people without underlying skin conditions find themselves with dry, itchy skin. Find out more about allergic skin conditions and how to avoid the winter itch:

The only remedy which helps us for generalized itchy skin (i.e. no eruptions or other noticeable marks) is Zyrtec 10 mg, now available as a generic. We have been taking it since it was first marketed many years ago and does a good job of controlling s many (but not all) of our allegy symptoms, such as runny nose, itchy eyes, swollen sinuses, etc. We experienced pronounced drowsiness for the first 2-3 days when we start or restart it but that does diminish.

There are milder meds such as Claritin but it never worked for us. You need to try one medication at a time, under the supervision of your doctor. Try to avoid multiple ingredient preparations.

I do believe all of the ideas you’ve introduced in your post.

They are really convincing and will certainly work.
Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you
please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
Thanks for the post.

This type of coat tends to thiccken with
temperature changes, or regular clipping, annd it will also shed out
minimally, but regularly, as well. They may also tump to get attention, which might mean they want out of tthe cage to pkay and be with the family.
Somehow having their own space eases the separation anxikety that most dogs experience.

Ideally, you should design your garden using urban permaculture techniques.
By planting to attract beneficial insects and to detract from
others it eliminates the need for using man made chemicals and insect repellents, a process
often known as companion planting. This clearly signals a state of alarm in the nervous system
that obviously influences biological processes such a sleep,
mood, blood circulation and many actual impede our awareness, cognition and learning abilities.

An interesting discussion is worth comment.

There’s no doubt that that you should publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks
don’t speak about such topics. To the next!

Kind regards!!

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m
a little lost on everything. Would you recommend
starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I’m
totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
