Geriatric dermatitis. There's strong evidence that physical or environmental irritation, along with a defective aged epidermal barrier might contribute to the development of atopic dermatitis in elderly patients. The reduction in skin barrier function associated with getting older can exacerbate atopic dermatitis. Intermittent use of topical corticosteroid, along with regular application of moisturizers and emollients, have been the standard management of the disease.
