Colorado Springs has scratched Cody, Wyoming, as the itchiest city in the country.

The Lanacane Dry, Itchy Skin Index for January bumps Cody to tenth place. The index measures the probability of itching due to dry skin as a result of temperature, wind chill and relative humidity. It rates about 400 U.S. cities.

The University of Delaware's Center for Climatic Research and the Lanacane Itch Information Center created the index.

It's the first time in a long time that Mountain states didn't dominate the itchy cities list during a winter month.

All eight cities between Colorado Springs and Cody on the top ten list are in the East.
