My guy had dry scaly skin across the top of his nose leather for quite a few years. I began adding salmon oil to his meals; it cleared within a few weeks and has stayed away. He tends toward dry skin especially in the wintertime anyway. You could try rubbing extra virgin coconut oil into the dry area. It has good healing properties and is non-toxic, since he is licking it.
Please don't litter. Neuter your pets!
