It can be due to xerosis, eczema or psoriasis. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally. Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day. You can also use a topical cortisone (steroid) cream or ointment after consulting your urologist. Adding a humidifier to the central heating system of your home or using a humidifier also helps.
If the symptoms persist then please consult a urologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted. Warm regards.
