Brief Answer:
Low estrogen could be the reason

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Low levels of estrogen in the menopause can result in such skin conditions. It can be presented as dryness, scaly and with minute pappules. The only and comforting remedy it to apply a Moisturizer to the affected skin.

You can also take vitamin E and Omega fatty acid supplements for a period of two to three months.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
