How to get rid of dry and scaly elbows:

The high pressure joints like knees, elbows and heels needs some cushion, that is the reason the skin over these joints is thicker. Some extra padding is good for protection, but scaly buildup on elbows is really uncomfortable and unattractive. Even those who devote considerable time to groom and clean their skin can be guilty of overlooking this flaky spot.

Well,  No matter how long you have been ignoring your elbows (and other rough and dry parts) there are certain ways to get rid of dry and scaly buildup (leaving your skin soft and supple) :

1. Halve a lemon and add a few pinches of sugar/ salt and rub it on the rough/ scaly skin for 5 minutes. 

2.  Exfoliate once or twice a week.

3. Moisturize your elbows using a thick cream or petroleum jelly especially before going to bed.

4. Coconut oil works great in doing away with dry and scaly skin.

5. When the dryness situation is really dire; soak them in raw milk for 10 minutes.

Note: Thick red skin with flaky white patches can be psoriasis. In that case you need to consult a dermatologist.
