What is dry skin?
Dry skin, medically known as xerosis or xeroderma, is a very common condition that affects many adults as a result of environmental or underlying medical conditions. Dry skin can affect any area of the body, though it is most commonly located on the forearms, lower legs, hands/knuckles, feet, scalp and lips.
Dry skin is a symptom that is traditionally indicative of another skin condition. There are six common skin conditions in which dry skin is one of the main symptoms, including eczema, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris, lichen simplex, ichthyosis and nodular prurigo.
