Bathing during the cold, winter months can both prevent and treat winter rashes. If you are experiencing dry skin or rash, soaking in a warm bath with whole milk for ten minutes can offer relief. If you do not find sitting in a bath full of milk appealing, you can substitute finely ground oats and find the same comfort. That said, bathing too often in hot water will actually deplete moisture, so be sure to keep the temperature reasonable and moisturize well afterwards, if you enjoy frequent bathing.
