    It could be a fungal infection, it looks a little like what I had on my feet recently and for me it was extremely itchy. If that's the case, a few days of using an anti-fungal cream from the doc will clear it right up. It could just be dry skin too and in that case, any moisturiser for sensitive skin would probably do the trick but if it continues or causes you any itching or discomfort then I'd get it checked out.

    Possibly yes.

    It's not at all itchy, but clearly isn't normal. Is there any anti-fungal cream you'd recommend?

    My infection was only itchy for a day or two and then it just remained really dry and scaly until I went to the doctor. The cream I used was Daktacort and I think you can only get that from a doctor but it worked really well and my skin was back to normal within three days. Touch wood, 3 months on and it hasn't returned.
