Probably: This probably is a case of dry skin. This might be caused by friction from exercise (especially runners) soaps, hot showers, hot baths - basically anything that can strip away the oils that keep our skin from drying and peeling. If it doesn't improve with a skin moisturizer, it is best to see your Dr to determine why.
