Dear Anonymous
Low thyroid functions can cause dry skin and hair - you can have it tested with a blood test ( thyroid function test). It may help to take evening primrose oil supplements, bath with Elizabeth Anne Baby shampoo or UEA cream instead of soap and use aqueous cream liberally after bathing.
