DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Do I need to see a dermatologist for an itchy skin rash from cold weather?

Hi, I have just returned from a 10 days trip in Europe where it was 6 degrees Celsius. During the trip, I had very Itchy rashes and hives particularly on my inner thighs, ankles and arms. Now that I’m back in Singapore, it has been less Itchy but the scaly looking skin is pretty unsightly. Please advise whether I should visit a dermatologist or it will disappear on its own.

Hi JW,

It is not uncommon to develop dryness and itch after a trip to a cold country with low humidity.  The dryness of the skin can aggravate the itch and can lead to the development of eczema. Hives can also be triggered by the change in temperature and climate.

It would be useful for you now to use soap free washes and moisturize the skin regularly but if the dryness and scaling is persistent, you can visit the dermatologist who will be able help you with this problem.

Hope you had an enjoyable trip to Europe!
