    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!

    I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but your question did catch my attention.  Did you ever find any relief?  Did the patches go away after winter was over, or did they persist?  It sounds like they were bothering you quite a bit, so I would suggest, if you haven't already, visiting your doctor or a dermatologist to learn what you might do if they return next winter.


    If you have already found a solution, would you be willing to return to the community and tell us what you learned?  It may be of help to someone else with a similar condition.


    Best of luck,
