Eczema associated with a decrease in skin surface lipid and characterized by scaly, occasionally fissured patches of dermatitis overlying dry skin. The 'cracked' appearance of the skin may resemble cracked porcelain. Generally seen on the extremities, occasionally on the trunk, this disorder is much worse during wintertime and in older individuals and adolescents who bathe or shower too frequently.
