Dry, itchy, eczema-prone skin is one of the most common presentations to a dermatologist’s office and can be a source of significant stress and discomfort. If you live in a cold climate, the dry winter months can be a particularly high-risk time for developing a flare of dry skin or eczema. Regardless of the climate you live in, several other factors besides climate can dictate your risk of developing clinically significant dryness and itchiness of the skin. These include your natural genetic susceptibility, occupational factors (examples of high-risk occupations include healthcare workers, hairdressers, chefs and cleaners), particular sensitivities or contact allergies an individual might have, stress levels, and more.
Ultimately, dry, itchy skin and eczema are the result of an inability of your skin to retain as much moisture and hydration as it needs to maintain homeostasis. Our expertly-trained, board-certified dermatologists have collectively treated thousands of cases of eczema and dry skin of all types and causes, and have used their collective knowledge and experience to compile a selection of their most highly recommended skin care products for the treatment and maintenance of dry skin and eczema.
