Hi I cannot comment without having a picture. However please try the following to help. use a ph balanced syndet soap. the frequnt application of a good thick creamy moisturiser over the dry area will also help. Take diet which incudes healthy fats like nuts and fish. If these tips do not help do meet a dermatologist
