Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query She might be suffering from icthyosis. In this condition the skin becomes very dry and flaky. Actually it will go off with age. Just keep applying a moisturiser. The best thing is coconut oil. apply it liberally three to four times a day. If possible please upload a photograph of her dry skin. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and better line of management. Waiting for your response. Thank you
