Definition of «Xeroderma»

Xeroderma: Abnormally dry skin.

Xeroderma can be caused by a deficiency of vitamin A, systemic illness, overexposure to sunlight, or medication.

It can usually be addressed by the use of over-the-counter (OTC) topical preparations. If these products do not relieve the condition, see an aesthetician or dermatologist for more specific remedies.

From the Greek "xeros" meaning "dry" + the Greek "derma" meaning "skin" = dry skin.
