Welcome to White Pebble Dermatology practice in Columbia, Maryland and Highland, Maryland! Dry skin is a common skin condition that occurs when the skin doesn't retain enough moisture. It can cause flaking, itching, and other symptoms that can be uncomfortable and unsightly. In this section, we'll discuss dry skin in more detail and explain how our team can help you manage this condition.

What is Dry Skin?

Dry skin occurs when the skin doesn't retain enough moisture, which can be caused by a variety of factors including weather, genetics, age, and lifestyle. Common symptoms of dry skin include rough, flaky, or scaly patches, redness, itching, and cracked or chapped skin. Dry skin can occur anywhere on the body, but is most common on the hands, feet, arms, and legs.

Treatment Options

At our dermatology practice, we offer a variety of effective treatment options for dry skin, including:

  • Moisturizers: creams, ointments, and lotions that can be applied to the skin to lock in moisture and prevent dryness
  • Topical corticosteroids: creams and ointments that can reduce inflammation and relieve itching
  • Humidifiers: devices that add moisture to the air and can help prevent dry skin
  • Lifestyle changes: avoiding hot showers or baths, using gentle soaps and detergents, and wearing protective clothing can all help prevent and manage dry skin

Our team of dermatology specialist will work closely with you to determine the best treatment approach based on the severity of your dry skin.


Preventing dry skin is key to avoiding uncomfortable symptoms and maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Here are some tips to help prevent dry skin:
