Eczema. View of a severe red rash on the torso of an adult male alzheimer's patient suffering from acute eczema. Eczema is an inflammation of the skin which produces itching and may be accompanied by scaling or blisters. Here, some of the eczema sores have scabbed over. This disorder may have no obvious external cause, or may be due to an allergy. For mild cases treatment consists of applying emollients, such as petroleum jelly, which keep the skin in the affected area soft and reduce irritation and scratching. In severe cases corticosteroid drugs are prescribed. Alzhei- mer's disease is a progressive form of senile dementia.
