and also I have almost perfectly Round <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my ribs under my arms, one is under my chin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my breast, here and there. Maybe 15 or so... They aren't in patches, they are spread out. It does seem like on the inner most part of the circle it's fine but there is kinda blistery bumps also. No puss or anything just bumps in the circle, but definitely Dry skin.
I noticed that I have itchy red marks on my body that after a while become brown with Dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> top, It is all over my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span> now.....<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my butt, legs, arms stomach and thigh..please help me what is this?
i started to notice this condition a few months after i got eczema <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my temples and forehead. i have similar dark <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span> where i have had bad eczema and i was wondering if these would go away too. however, i am unsure if the dark skin on my forehead was caused by the eczema as my father has also had a similar problem his entire life.
I have these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span>, dark <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> that flake a lot and they're located <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my back, stomach and neck area. In some places it is a very dark brown color and other it looks very Dry and faded. If it matters, I have had eczema when I was very young and still have very Dry skin on my jawline, nose and a little on my cheeks since 4th grade (I am now in 6th). I cannot pinpoint exactly when I obtained this skin condition but I know that I didn't have it two years ago. Please help!
It is more so in winters when the air is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span>.

In eczema there are scaly thick patches of Dry skin which may occur in flare ups.In keratosis pilaris there are Dry skin patches that have reddish bumps. These patches are usually itchy and become worse when air humidity levels are low. They are seen on the thighs, upper arms and cheeks. Conditions like hypothyroidism can lead to Dry skin.
Hello i have small Round, oval <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span> at first there was one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my boob and it got bigger then one showed up on my inner left forarm then i found more little ones on both my boobs that fade then come back then some more on my belly then one on my lower back near my hip on my right side then had some small ones on my neck. some of the look like ringworm but fade and disapeare then later come back all red or look like a Dry spot. they do not itch or peal.
I have brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> growing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my stomach, back, underarms, under breast and neck. The Dryness is also spreading onto my chest. In the shower the Dry skin gets soft and I can scratch it off but it lightens the spots. It still comes back after a couple of days dark. I'm a little overweight but not drastically. It's not itchy unless my skins really really Dry. It's just very ugly and I've been dealing with this since I was 16 and now that I'm 19 it has grown all over my upper body.
Recently (the past 2 year) I periodically get this same itchyness on patches of my scalp (not dandruff). More recently (last 6 months) I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> all over my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span> (leg, thigh abdoman,buttox,waist and upperarms) these are not as itchy. All of these symptoms come and go as they please, I can not make them go away and have been unable to trace down what causes the flare up, they don't always appear at the same time.
I have extremely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> all over my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span>. I have several darkened extra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> patches on my upper arms and back, and one on my elbow. It doesn't matter how much lotion, vaseline, or anti-fungal creme I put on my skin, it is always Dry. I've looked up eczema and psoriasis and nothing seems to be the same as what I have. I am really suffering and in desperate need of some help! I have tried dermarest medicated lotion as well, and it did nothing.
My doctor informed me that my body was allergic to certain bacteria or fungai <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span>. Other people have this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> their <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> too but some just don't react to it like others. Anytime I see signs of it, I try to use Selson Blue on it immediately to minimize it from spreading. If it gets itchy or unbarable, the best lotion I have found is GoldBond Triple Action Relief with Methol (green bottle). It can be found at any drug store, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc...
For years, I've been getting Round, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span>...mostly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my upper arms. It started in the winter months but then even when they would seem to go away, it left my skin discolored in those places. In the summer when I get tanner, those spots remain. They now seem to becoming more frequent and in more places then my arms. For a little backgRound...I received allergy shots for 4 years when I was a kid.
I moved from a very humid climate to a Dry, colder climate/higher altitude this winter. Since moving here, we both have developed rashes throughout our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span>, kind of scaly but not quite, just noticible, red patches some no bigger than a dime some larger. They itch too. I have to assume that this is due to the climate change, but wonder what would be good treatment. I have tried a combination of a good moisturizer mixed with hydrocortisone cream with no luck.
Hello, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> results when there is not enough water in the stratum corneum for it to function properly. Too much soapy water, exposure to harsh chemicals, the normal aging process and certain types of skin diseases are some of the causes of decreased amounts of protective skin oils which in turn causes Dry skin. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally.
Pregnancy hormones bring about huge changes to almost every part of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Dry</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> during pregnancy is usually brought <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> by a loss of bodily fluids. That’s because your body is sucking you Dry so that it can provide all the necessary hydration for your baby’s development. Because your need for bodily fluids are increasing so much, it is almost impossible to keep up, meaning your skin is dehydrating. So make sure you’re drinking plenty of water at least 8 glasses a day.
This caused Dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> other parts of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>body</span> during treatment (especially lips and face). Could this be a side effect? 4. About 15 years ago I remember finding a tube of medication that said something about "Penis Shaft Irritation" that probably belonged to my Father. Obviously I don't want to ask him about it. Is there something that could be hereditary? 5. Or anything else that you could tell me about this condition would be helpful.
Or do u still think that its not eczema. Let me redescribe my symptoms.

We've both gotten checked for stds and have come up clear. what could this be? we have unprotected sex so it couldnt be condom irratation, we do use coconut oil sometimes for lube. thanks :) This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/247053'>flaking Dry skin on penis--hsv? anything else?</a>.
i stumbled across a skin condition called melasma while i was googling contraceptive pills, and realised this sounds exactly like the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>patches</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>skin</span></span> that i have, but i have it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my back and arm not my face (although my back and arms probably get more sun than my face because i wear hats).
