Dry, dandruff like skin behind geldings "elbow"

My gelding has a dry patch about where his elbow area and barrel meet. No hair loss Or anything just like dry skin under his hairs.. What should I do to make this go away and cure/fix it? It doesn't look to be a "skin condition" more just like a spot where he has dry skin under his coat.. No other spots like this..

First determine what may have caused the problem, if he is getting pinched or rubbed by the girth or rubbed on something else. Then I would just curry it to get the dead skin off. Since there is no hair loss and I am assuming it is not causing any discomfort, if you put anything on it it will just cause dirt to stick to the hair. Then just see what happens.
