Round dry patch that doesn't itch on the side of leg, can be peeled. Concerned ?

Hello, it is winter and it is definitely dry skin weather. I noticed a round dry patch that doesn t itch on the side of my leg by my need. I do believe I had this some years ago. It does not itch but is red and the skin has peeled away and is very dry. I used some skin cream on it. Should I have cause for concern or just keep it moist? Thank you!

Dermatologist 's  Response

it seems to be due to dryness.

i would recommend that you apply a moisturizer thrice a day.

also you can apply prescription based steroid cream called clobetasol which will help to resolve it.

take care
