excessive shedding

At 82 and in good health for my age, have suffered from arthritis (replaced joints), my skin has always been dry, however I seem to shed skin consistently, every morning my sheets are full of flakes, my lower legs get large flaky areas (alligator ski?) even though I use Amlactin daily.
any idea what I can do for this?

Protein deficiency apart from vitA,and zinc could contribute to this.Dietary modifications are recommended.
