I have flaky dry skin under my armpits, traveling under my breasts down to my stomach. My doctors don't know what it is. Has anyone ever heard of dry, flaky (not red) skin trails being an initial sign of cancer or something worse than just dry skin? It was not caused by winter weather--it has been this way since before fall. I just have a gut feeling that something is wrong.
