Have it looked at: Some rashes are hard to diagnose even when the doctor has a chance to see it. Without seeing a skin condition, rendering an opinion is risky at best. Based on the time of year alone, you may describing xerosis, which is an abnormal dryness of the skin that is more common in northern climates during the winter. There are pictures online. Reduce your shower frequency and use lotions for moisture.

Need eval to know.: These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Sometimes lab testing or biopsy is necessary.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Is it possible that my skin is itchy because I smoke a lot?

Probably not: Unless you are allergic to cigarette smoke, your skin should not be itchy from just smoking a lot. However, smoking a lot can lead to some medical issues that may manifest themselves by causing itchy skin. Thus, i'd suggest seeing your doc if no definite association between smoking and itchy skin can be determined.

Eczema: Likely eczema due to dryness or harsh skin care products. Use gentle soaps, lotions after cooler bathing sessions, and try some over the counter steroid cream.

Lots of causes: This is a difficult one to answer well in such a short space. There are many causes for itching from completely benign to concerning. Often dry skin is the cause the older we get. And we often put things on our skin that makes it itch. Certain medical conditions can have itch as a symptom. This really needs to be evaluated by your primary doctor and possibly a dermatologist to help figure it out.

SCAM: If you buy or use this stuff, the joke is on you. Exercise. Do not smoke. Do not use too much alcohol. Avoid street drugs. Eat a plant- based diet with dairy products. Have fun. Get enough sleep. If you do this, you will thrive. You will get NO benefit from pills. And if you itch, see a dermatologist.
