Can the cold weather make my elbows feel like they are burning?
Im 15 years old and my elbows are slightly red and almost feel like they are burning a little bit. They are red/pink in colour and are a little bit dry. Do you think this is because of the weather? It's very cold outside. Or could it be resting on them? I'm not sure. I appreciate any replies x
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Yes cold weather can make the elbows dry red chaffed and itchy too. Apply a good moisturizer sever times a day. Glycerin mixed with rose water too helps.
If this does not help, consult a skin specialist for it could also be due to eczema, dermatitis or fungal infection.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
