Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Probably you are suffering from a condition called as ichthyosis. In this condition skin flakes out, especially in winters. You need to apply a once a day moisturiser like ammonium lactate. A brand for such cream is AMYLAC. Apply this cream daily. It will help in repairing the skin barrier. Let me know if you have any other doubts Thank you
