Does menopause cause dry skin?

During the menopausal transition, the state of the vagina often changes. Vaginal dryness and pain are symptoms of vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) that occur as a result of lowered estrogen levels. The tissues in the vagina weaken, get thinner, dryer, and may get inflamed, causing pain, burning, or discharge.
