Dry dermatitis with cracking is considered an extreme case of dry skin in which the pathological dryness is associated with cracking of the horny layer.
Legs and feet are often dry and chapped. The main reason of this dryness is linked to bad blood circulation because of the remoteness of legs and feet from the heart.
Ingrown hair usually occurs after depilation when, instead of emerging from the hair follicle, the hair grows crookedly and becomes trapped beneath the horny layer.
The inguinal fold is frequently affected by redness due to maceration of the horny layer. The maceration can only be caused by the humid heat or by the growth of bacteria with macerating action on the horny layer.
Desquamation is when you can see white flakes of dry skin coming of your skin.
