Caption: Skin loss. View of the arm of an 86 year old woman showing an area of skin loss. This was caused by a minor trauma. The skin of an elderly person is far thinner and less elastic than that of a healthy younger person, meaning injuries are more likely to have a detrimental effect. This patient was taking steroid drugs at the time of the injury, which may have contributed to the skin loss. Exposed areas of skin such as this need to be covered up and kept clean to reduce the risk of infection.
