Cracking skin, change in color, occurs in dry weather

Hi, my foot fingers used to crack from beneath and then the skin colour of the fingers started changing and it started spreading towards the joint of my fingers. The skin on the affected area also became rough. The skin on the affected area is different from the normal skin. These cracks occur generally in dry weathers while the change in colour persists even in moist weather. Now I m seeing the roughness as small patches on my waist and my inner thighs. The affected area on the inner thigh is increasing. It looks like as it has sunburn .
