Dry skin is a huge worldwide problem that was largely neglected in both dermatology and geriatrics, even though more than 70% of the elderly suffer from it. It produces intense pruritus and eczema and must be addressed by application of moisturizers. So far, no clinical criteria were defined for a diagnosis of xeroderma. Amrei is working on a new dermoscopic sign to detect this disease.
