Inflammatory skin conditions affect people of all ages, genders, and races. These common conditions are frequent causes of visits to the dermatologist. The geriatric population is often afflicted by these conditions because many are chronic and relapsing diseases. These inflammatory conditions include but are not limited to psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and Grover disease. Chronic inflammatory skin conditions place a large burden on the health care system in the United States and have many associated comorbidities. This article discusses these inflammatory dermatoses that affect the geriatric population and common therapeutic options.
