Rough skin

I have rough, papular skin right below my chin and elbows, and I found out that it is called Hypovitaminosis A (toad skin). I have used vitamin supplements for a while but i see no change. Is there any other medication available for this?

I would consider other possibilities in that case. There are conditions like kerotosis pilaris, frictional keratosis etc which mimic the conditions thst you mentioned. Try using very mild cleansers and apply moisturizers regularly . Avoid resting your chins over the hands while sitting on a chair and use some elbow pads like a piece of cloth while resting your elbows over the chair. If in case this doesn't improve your condition consult the specialist.
