According to question 9 of the DLQI, sexual function was affected in our patients with neurodermatitis. When we looked at the total and individual scores from the FSFI, the total score was significantly decreased in female patients with neurodermatitis compared with that in controls. Analyses of each domain showed that scores for desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction were significantly decreased in these patients. The pain score was also lower in the patient group than in the control group, although the difference was not statistically significant. As observed in Niemeier et al (1997) and Mercan et al (2008), we conclude that neurodermatitis often results in sexual dysfunction. We also conclude that neurodermatitis has effects particularly on the desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and satisfaction components of sexual function in female patients. Laboratory Studies Protein Linked to Atopic Dermatitis (National Institutes of Health) This is a skin disorder characterized by a self-perpetuating scratch-itch cycle:[4] In dermatology, the study of this subject is quite new. Niemeier et al (1997) compared sexual behaviors in patients with psoriasis, neurodermatitis, and controls. Patients with skin diseases had a significantly impaired sexual life, compared with healthy controls (Niemeier et al, 1997). Gupta and Gupta (1997) reported that 40.8% of patients with psoriasis expressed that their sexual activity had diminished since the onset of their skin disease. Sampogna et al (2007) investigated the sexual life in patients with psoriasis with 2 dermatology‐specific questionnaires (Skindex‐29 and DLQI) and 2 psoriasis‐specific questionnaires (Psoriasis Disability Index [PDI] and Impact of Psoriasis on Quality of Life Questionnaire [IPSO]). Of 936 patients, 35.5% (PDI) to 71.3% (IPSO) reported sexual problems because of psoriasis. Mercan et al (2008) used the Arizona Sexual Experience Scale (ASEX) to compare sexual function in 31 patients with neurodermatitis, 24 patients with psoriasis, and 33 control cases. They found that the neurodermatitis group had more sexual problems than the psoriasis group and the control group. Sukan and Maner (2007) used the ASEX to examine sexual problems in 50 patients with vitiligo, 50 patients with chronic urticaria, and 50 healthy controls. The total scores of the ASEX in the female patient groups were significantly higher than those in controls. The score for satisfaction from orgasm in male patients was less than that in controls. In men, differences in other subitem scores of ASEX were not significant between the patient groups and controls. Clothing Souq.com Kailey JM The Lancet App Kubo A, Nagao K, Amagai M.

With the right treatment plan, seasonal allergies can be managed for better quality of life.” Become an Affiliate ADHD in Adults Dog Care Center References Jiang Can and Bai Ji Li are able not only to expel external Wind, but also to extinguish internal Wind, the Liver-Wind. They are more suitable for use when the patient has Liver-Yin and Blood deficiency, and disturbance of the Liver-Wind, such as seen in pruritus in elderly people, skin diseases starting or worsening in stressful situations, itchy rashes in the evening, in the night or after menstruation, and chronic skin diseases. Since external Wind and internal Wind often coexist—for instance, the itch may not only be worse in the above conditions, but also when the weather changes, after taking spicy food or during cold infections—therefore substances that expel external Wind and those that extinguish internal Wind can be used together.

This also reduces the itchiness. Page information Coexistence of sexual dysfunction, especially female sexual dysfunction, with different diseases has gained interest in recent years (Cayan et al, 2004; Laumann et al, 2005; Bachmann, 2006; Hayes et al, 2006; Segraves and Woodard, 2006). Numerous studies have been performed in other disciplines of medicine about sexual dysfunction (Monga et al, 1998; Ambler et al, 2001; Koseoglu et al, 2005; Tikiz et al, 2005).
