Dry Skin Relief for Patients with PF.
I believe I’ve written about a similar topic before, but thought it might be helpful to re-post my question about relieving dry skin for those who might be new to our forums community. Canada is experiencing a terrible deep freeze at the moment, and we’re under an extreme weather warning with evening temperatures dropping to nearly -38 degrees celsius in some locations! For those of us living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), this poses a huge safety risk for our breathing, but also for our skin.
Do any of you suffer from excessively dry skin throughout the winter months?
This seems to get worse for me each winter, and I am sure it is a combination of a few different things: constantly washing my hands to avoid illness, medication side effects and the dryness that is in the air from the cold weather. Regardless of why they seem worse this year, I have to come up with a solution to stop the cracking and bleeding on my hands.
If you suffer from dry skin during the winter: how do you get relief?
