During winter, when humidity drops below 30%, then the surface of skin become dry, and immune system starts to attack the skin as shown below



When I soak my hand into warm water over 1-2 minutes, then immune system stops attacking skin.  Would immune system too sensitive? what kind of foods should be eaten to improve immune system?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Perhaps you're experiencing eczema? Eczema and related conditions tend to flare up in the winter (or colder months) because dry conditions tend to make skin drier. I don't think it has to do with the immune system, what prompted you to think that way?

During winter, I would like to know more on what cause Eczema reaction on skin.
When I sink my hand in warm water, my skin feels better temporary, does skin lose protection during dry winter season? so it makes immunity system trigger a false alarm to be attacked on skin.

Do you have any suggestions?

I think for some people, the dry air accentuates the effect of dry skin that you actually experience all year round. As a result, your skin becomes flaky and prone to damage from itching and rubbing.

Would it be the root cause to trigger immunity system to attack dry skin (damage area)?

That's not the correct explanation though. Placing your hands in a warm water bath brings temporary relief only by relaxing your nerves; once they're exposed again, the nerve endings on your skin are exposed again.

It's very possible. Observational studies have indicated a link between vitamin D status and eczema outcomes, including lower serum vitamin D levels associated with increased incidence and severity of eczema symptoms. Vitamin D is known to have a regulatory influence on both the immune system and skin barrier function, both critical in the pathogenesis of eczema.
