Don't worry this is not a gross subject. I have noticed for many years that I white flaky stuff on my face. Before I leave for work I get a rough feeling shirt and rub my face with it. I then look at my shirt and it has all this white stuff on it. But then I notice my face is silky smooth. It turns red from all the rubbing from it but it goes away after a while. It's pretty much all over my face and including my ears. Putting lotion on my face helps somewhat but not much. It's not noticeable if you are a few feet from me but you look really close to my face it is. I want to go to a dermatologist but I want to treat it myself before I go to the doctors. Does anyone else have this same problem? Oh by the way I live in a very dry state.
