Hi, I am 18, my height is 1m62cm and weigh 50 kgs. On the side of my thighs there are some cracked skin,however, it is NOT DRIED. The surface of my skin is very smooth but I can see some cracked skin cells under the skin and they are white. I regularly do exercise and go jogging with a very healthy diet . What does this symptom say? I heard that there is some medicine that can apply on the skin to treat cracked skin but do not know which product is for my situation?

Welcome to healthcare magic
From your description it looks like you are having stretch marks. Gain or loss of weight can cause stretch marks and thigh is a common site or it.

You may apply a thick moisturizing cream and massage over the stretch marks twice a day so that they become less prominent. You may use Palmers massage cream for stretch marks or Venussia max cream.

Procedures like derma rollers, fraxel lasers etc will also work to make it look better. You may consult a dermatologist practicing cosmetology for the same and these procedures will be costly.
Hope this helped
Take care
