Due to the decreased function of sebaceous and sweat glands in elderly individuals, their skin often loses moisture, leading to the development of skin itching. From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, elderly individuals often suffer from deficiencies in vital energy and blood, imbalances in nourishment and defense, and insufficient yin and blood to adequately nourish the skin.
In this case, the elderly gentleman exhibited atypical symptoms of lichenification and eczematous changes on the skin. Lichenification involves localized thickening of the skin due to chronic scratching, resulting in a rough and mossy appearance. Eczematous changes occur due to frequent and excessive scratching, leading to redness, blisters, and even oozing.
Traditional Chinese medicine treatment for elderly skin itching not only yields good results but also lacks side effects. Qianhe Tang has developed a traditional Chinese medicine supplement called “Cuize Yuyin San.” After taking this supplement for two weeks, the patient observed a gradual reduction in red patches, and the damaged skin significantly improved. For those with skin itching and dryness concerns, it is essential to practice proper skin care. Avoid using very hot water for bathing, keep bathing times reasonable, quickly dry your body after a bath, and apply moisturizer afterward. Avoid excessive use of soap to scrub your skin and opt for loose-fitting cotton clothing. Additionally, cultivate good lifestyle habits, maintain a light and easily digestible diet, consume plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, and ensure regular bowel movements. Avoid known allergenic foods.
