Health Tip: Avoid Winter Skin Rashes

(HealthDay News) -- Cold, dry winter weather can wreak havoc on your hands, triggering rashes, dry patches and irritation.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests how to prevent a rash on your hands:

  • Wear task-appropriate gloves to protect your hands from harsh chemicals, such as dyes and detergents.

  • Wear insulated gloves or mittens in cold weather.

  • Wash your hands without irritating them by using warm water and a mild cleanser, such as a beauty bar or moisturizing liquid.

  • Apply moisturizer to your hands often and generously.
