    I think thats what it is called. You know flakey scaley legs caused by mites. By the way I can't spell well and I can't find spell check.

    Use adams flea and tick spray or shampoo. Then rub/scrub the legs daily with vasoline or vicks. You will have to treat daily for a week or two at least. Progress will be slow because you are not just dealing with the mites, but with a chronic inflammatory reaction.
