Aging is universal and unstoppable and as people age, their body's change resulting in a variety of health-related problems. One area where the
change is most common and also visible is the skin. Eczema is a skin condition that affects people of all ages but is more common among the elderly.
What Is Eczema?
Eczema is a condition that causes dry scaly skin. The skin contains lipids, which are insoluble fatty compounds that surround the cells
and enable water to be retained. This is what keeps the skin moist and soft. If the volume of lipids is reduced, the moisture that the skin needs is lost
to evaporation and dry patches develop.
