Ichthyosis vulgaris... It  is characterized by dry skin with small scales in a color range from white to dirty gray or brown. Ichthyosis vulgaris slows your skin's natural shedding process. This causes chronic, excessive buildup of the protein in the upper layer of the skin (keratin). Symptoms include: Dry, scaly skin. Though there is no cure for this disease but experiment with urea, lactic acid, or salicylic acid up to twice each day can be tried.
