Unhappy Something's wrong: Ingrown hairs + totally dry,wrinkly skin + sick and twisted hair

I am male, 30 years old and really hope someone has an advice for me.
I have already been to a dermatologist and he couldn't help me.

I have been noticing for the past 2 years that my forearms are full of ingrown
hairs. I never had this before! No matter how much I try to remove dead skin with a wet towel or rub my skin under water it doesn't help. My dermatologist had no explanation for this and also didn't take it seriously.

And I also have really really dry and wrinkly skin especially on the inner side of
my arms. It looks awful. My grandmother had skin like this in her 80ies and I am only 30! What can cause such a weird looking skin? It's definitely not too much water. I do not shower very often and other than that the skin never gets in contact with any water! But then why is it so shockingly dry and wrinkly?

I am absolutely sure that something's wrong with me but I don't know what.

Besides the ingrown hair, the wrinkly,dry skin I also have really sick looking hairs on my head which are increasing in number. These hairs are totally twisted and look sick. They are twisted like a corkscrew. I also showed this to a dermatologist and he also had no idea.

Any suggestions?


I took some shots. 1+2 show the dry skin on the upper arms and 3+4 show the ingrown hairs on the forearms.

I can't take pics of the hairs though because you simply don't see single hairs on a photo.
