Why are elderly patients more at risk of developing cutaneous toxicities?

  • Because they are more likely to have poor circulation, which leads the chemotherapy drug to the skin
  • Because they cannot clean their skin correctly
  • Because their skin is delicate, more easily damaged and less able to deal with infections or heal after injuries
  • Because they cannot drink enough water, which leaves their skin dehydrated
