It is called scaling skin, causes include: actinic keratosis, allergic reaction, athlete’s foot, contact dermatitis, allergic eczema, psoriasis etc.. A definite diagnosis should be made along with the pathology. Therefore, you need to see a dermatologist.
Actinic keratosis is a rough, scaly patch on your skin that develops from years of exposure to the sun. Symptoms include rough, dry or scaly patch of skin, color as varied as pink, red or brown and itching or burning. It can be simply diagnosed by examining your skin. It disappears on its own, but returns after more sun exposure. If it is severe, medication is recommended, such as fluorouracil cream and imiquimod cream.

Symptoms of a mild allergic reaction can include hives, itching, rash, scratchy throat, diarrhea and dizziness. Tests to determine what’s causing your allergy include skin tests and blood tests. In most cases, over-the-counter antihistamines, such as Benadryl can be effective for controlling mild allergic reactions. For a severe allergic reaction, you should seek emergency medical attention.

Athlete's foot is a common fungal infection. you’ll probably see itchy, scaly red rash between your toes, small, red blisters and ongoing dryness and scaling. Treat athlete’s foot as soon as you notice even minor symptoms. Prescription-strength medication is usually used.

Contact dermatitis is a red, itchy rash caused by direct contact with a substance or an allergic reaction to it. Common irritants include solvents and shampoos. A patch test may be recommended to see if you're allergic to something. Usually it can be treated by home remedies, such as cool, wet compresses and an anti-itch cream.

Allergic eczema is a skin condition that occurs when a person's skin comes into contact with an allergen. The primary symptom of allergic eczema and other eczema types is a dry, itchy rash. Treatments for allergic eczema include applying hydrocortisone cream, moisturizing the skin with a fragrance-free moisturizer and taking antihistamines.

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. Common symptoms include red patches of skin covered with thick scales, small scaling spots, dry, cracked skin that may bleed, patients may also feel itching, burning or soreness. Treatments include topical treatments, light therapy and systemic medications.
my wife is 72 I checked her blood pressure it was 145/54.she is 5ft. tall,120 lb.
Her blood pressure is slightly higher than normal (90-140/60-90). Try to eat and exercise properly, and then measure it again three months later. If it's still higher than normal, she needs to take oral medications to lower her blood pressure.
Im 56 what should my blood pressure
The normal BP is 80-140/60-90mmHg.
My blood pressure this morning was165/82, pulse 63.  I am 82 years old.
Your blood pressure is higher than normal (90-140/60-90), but so long as you feel good, you don't have to worry. It's common in elderly people. Are you taking anti-hypertensive drugs?
My husband's BP is 156/68 pulse is 47 he is 83 he has been mowing today and his pulse has been low all day high was 53 is this dangerous he is 5-11 weight 172
A slow heart rate at the time of rest is actually normal, but when your heart beat goes less than 60 beats per minutes, it is abnormal.
The condition becomes symptomatic when the rest rate goes below 50 beats a minute, therefore, it is good practice to monitor your heart.
There are various levels or degrees of heart blocks, and they include:
First degree
All the signals from the atria get to the ventricles but in a slower than normal time.
Second degree
Not all signals from the atria reach the ventricles resulting in a slower or irregular rhythm.
Third degree
None of the signals from the atria reach the ventricles causing the His cells and other tissues in the ventricles to function as their pacemaker. The substitution slows down the pumping in these chambers resulting in a slower beat of the ventricles.
Bundle branch block
The electric signal is interrupted somewhere in the right or left ventricular branches close to the end of their path.
It is very dangerous when developed to the third degree.
Im 32 n my bp is low the lowest ever was 60/40 the hsp would not let me leave . it runs normally 90/80
Of course, doctors would not let you leave. It means your vital signs are not stable and  you would risk your life any minute. It sounds like you are in a very dangerous situation, and you should stay in the hospital and let the the doctor deal with it.
At present, your blood pressure is dangerous. Doctors will look for the cause until your blood pressure is normal and you can go home safely.
What are the vital signs? Why the doctors would not let her leave?
VITAL SIGNS refers to those that can reflect your body status. There are four primary vital signs, and they are separately body temperature (BT), blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR). Sometimes, the signs, depending on the clinical setting, can vary a to 5 or 6 but mostly the number is 4. On this condition, if there are problem with your vital signs, it means you have problem in your state of health. And that's why the doctor will not let her leave.
I just took my Blood pressure it was 135/74 I am 72.  The Dr took it last week and was 115/74.

I feel fine ..
It is very good. Blood pressure fluctuates normally within the normal range. You don't have to worry.
NO need to worry. Your BP is pretty OK. Normally blood pressure fluctuates within the normal range.
@Cindy The normal range for blood pressure is 90/60 - 140/90. Both your readings are normal. Plus, you feel fine. That's GREAT!
I’m a 66 year old female and my blood pressure is 150/88 and I take 30 mg of lisinopril and 25 mg metoprol how’s this for a blood pressure
Your blood pressure is still too high. Normal systolic blood pressure is between 90 and 139, and diastolic blood pressure is between 60 and 89.

You can improve your lifestyle by eating a low-salt diet, stopping smoking and restricting alcohol, and exercising moderately.

You need to take some time off to remeasure your blood pressure. If the blood pressure is still so high, you should adjust the antihypertensive drugs under the direction of a cardiologist.
