If I understood correctly, your microphone is not working correctly in
skype. In skype call, you can hear the other side, but the other side
can't understand you. Am I right?

In this case, the problem is not the skype in general (mine works
perfectly). You should verify your sound settings. Archwiki has some
steps to configure Alsa, for example.

Also, Did you take a look in Skype page at Archwiki?
