Dry skin: Dry skin can be a common problem, especially in the winter. There are many moisturizing creams and lotions over the counter you can try that are safe and effective for dry skin. If severe, your Doctor can examine you and provide prescription strength medication for you as well. Best wishes.

A rich lotion: would help. BUT - what do you wash your skin with. If it is overly harsh or drying - this could be part of the problem.

Eczema or psoriasis?: how it to your doc or check on the 'net. These are different and are treated differently! They can both be treated with topical medicines. See your doc and a good dermatologist if he/she is not sure! They are both treatable.
