Scaly leg skin: Scaly leg skin is often due to dryness, which can be caused by harsh soaps, hot water, chronic sun exposure or genetic condition with fish-like scales (ichthyosis vulgaris). Other health conditions associated with ichthyosis. You can improve the appearance of dry skin or ichthyosis by using good skin care and moisturizers with a little Alpha hydroxy acid in them but there is no permanent cure.
