    What causes winter itch symptoms?

    During these dry winter months, I occasionally get these small patches of dry skin.  I can usually treat them just fine with regular skin lotion, but because I can't effectively apply lotion to my middle back, three of these patches have turned into larger bumps.  The three bumps are isolated, red, and about 1/4 inches in diameter.  They remind me of a deep and big zit but are dry, itchy, and have been there for about a month.  I have been able to apply lotion to one which has helped a little, but I am wondering if I should be concerned or try other techniques to get rid of these bumps.  Thanks!
