If it started with the cold weather it could just be dry skin. Another possibility is feed. You could try adding som oil to their feed and see if that helps. You can also apply some mineral oil to their skin. If you don't see any creepy crawlies on their skin, it's unlikely that's the cause. For this and other pig health problems you should check out thepigsite.com. They have some helpful diagnostic tools.
