Is my itchy skin age-related?

Itching skin is a common problem among the elderly due to dryness resulting from loss of water skin oil glands responsible for keeping the skin soft and moist.

I am 72 years old but my skin itches so much, especially at night. Because I cannot help but scratch the itch, my skin is now covered with scars. I keep taking prednisolone to no avail. Does old age cause allergies, because I never had itching until last year? Basil Mutenda Senior
