A member asked:

I have extremely dry skin on my hands and wrists but i woke up today with a non itchy rash looking thing on my forearms. is it possible my dry skin just moved up my arm?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Many thing possible: Very dry skin may be eczema. People with eczema have dry areas of skin, are drier overall, and tend to have allergies (they are more sensitive to pollens, etc.). If it's eczema, one can try a cream like CeraVe. Dermatologists recommend such creams for the ceramides ingredient, which helps make dry eczema patches more normal. Cream is applied as needed, and also after bathing, to lock in moisture.
