During the Fall and Winter seasons, Atlanta’s humidity will decrease. Although the lower humidity certainly feels refreshing, many patients experience a worsening of their dry skin conditions, including eczema.
General recommendations of utilizing mild soaps and moisturizers might be sufficient for some patients, but more advanced prescription options are required to alleviate the itching that can often accompany more severe dry skin conditions.
Thankfully, there are several new prescription options for patients who suffer from dry skin and eczema. These newer medicines may be applied topically or injected (for more extensive and severe eczema).
