Answer

All cutaneous sites are susceptible in immunocompromised and elderly patients, who often have a history of a widespread, pruritic, eczematous eruption. The same is true in patients with existing dermatologic, particularly atopic, diseases, in whom scabies may exacerbate or complicate these conditions. [34]
