Pruritus (itching) is a common condition of advanced age, affecting nearly one half of older adults (older than 65 years) at some time, usually without a rash. Patients with chronic renal or hepatic insufficiency, anemia, thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, drug allergy, or underlying malignancy might have itch with or without a rash. For patients without a rash, treatment is symptomatic (., lubrication with emollients, and perhaps an antihistamine, coupled with treatment of any underlying problem). For patients with a rash, the treatment is the same, plus treatment of the skin disease (usually a secondary eczema) with topical or systemic corticosteroids.

After several weeks of healing, the patient typically has tighter skin with fewer wrinkles and less discoloration.
