My skin is peeling off in a powdered form(like dandruff) particularly in winter season. Local doctors says it is deficiency and no medicine. Medicine?

In brief: Face?

This may be seborrhea, which can respond to topical antifungals such as nizoral, (ketoconazole) Eurax lotion which decreases the demodex which lives in the pores.
Depending on efficacy this is a better approach than chronic steroid use which is only suppressive. In severe cases a trial of oral Nizoral (ketoconazole) may put this into remission.
