help with gypsum ceiling

Hi,I have a drywall ceiling and the light fixtures are recessed LED contraptions; when you remove them and reinstall them the gypsum around the whole is flaking.

WHat can I do to finish off the hole and avoid the flaking when the light fixture is removed and later reinstalled.

Any help is appreciated.

If possible can you submit an image. I am a bit unclear of what is occurring. Is the drywall finished and painted where it is flaking? If it simply compound it could be flaking from heat and no sealer to hold it.
Which bring me to my first concern could it be over heating? You see this far to often with recess lighting.Depending on the light some require insulation behind them and some require no insulation behind them. IC where insulation is in contact and non IC where no insulation is in contact by at least 3-4 inches are the types.
Are you removing the whole housing unit? Or the trim or pulling the bulb when it is flaking?
I hope this helps.If you can post more information and image I will try and provide further information to you.
