In brief: Cold air=dryness
You didn't say what part of your body is involved .
But many of us (any age) are affected by dryness in the winter. The skin loses some of its protective barrier. Use mild soaps or cleansers..Frequent creams or ointments (preferably with no fragrance ) & after bathing. You should be successful controlling this problem. More severe dryness can be ezcema.
