Dry Skin

Dry skin is common and often using a moisturizer helps repair dry skin. However, extremely dry skin can be a condition called dermatitis and may require a dermatologist’s help. Dermatitis, also known as xerosis,
is an inflammation of the skin that can cause itchy rashes or patches of dry, irritated skin.

Symptoms of dry skin include rough, scaly or flaking skin, itching, gray or ashy skin on people with dark skin, or cracks in skin, which may bleed. Cracks in dry skin can allow germs to get into the skin. These germs may cause an infection, of which red, sore spots may be a sign.
