Thanks for the query. This presentation can be seen in many disease like a superficial fungal infection or a contact dermatitis. Sometimes it is just seasonal exfoliation in certain prone patients and a moisturizer will suffice. However a thorough history, clinical examination and appropriate laboratory tests will be needed to solve the mystery. Consider seeing a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
