@ Skin Condition

The skin becomes dry and flakes easily as the oil contents of skin decreases with age. Dry skin becomes itchy. Sensations of dryness and tautness are common. Dry skin has a rough and finely flaking or scaly surface. These are seen in the upper back and the limbs, especially the shins. Sometimes asteatotic eczema occurs in areas of dry skin. These are seen as poorly demarcated, scaly round red patches. Sometimes a distinctive appearance of red scaly fissures in an irregular netlike pattern resembling cracked porcelain is seen.
