Cutting fingernails very short and applying ice or an anti-itch preparation can be helpful in preventing scratching. The typical localization of lesions in this age is antecubital fossae, hand dorsum and wrist joint region, popliteal fossae and ankle area, parotid folds, neck, torso. Neurodermatitis has a typical morphological element, it is papule, an appearance of which severe pruritus is preceded. Due to the grouping of papules skin in the folds becomes infiltrated with the pronounced intensification of a picture (lichenification). Color of foci is stagnantly red. Lichenification foci become rougher, dichromatic.

The DLQI is a 10‐item self‐administered instrument that measures physical function, work status, social and sport activities, depression, anxiety, pain, and well‐being. Question 9 of the DLQI is associated with sexual function (Öztürkcan et al, 2006). It has been used worldwide in more than 45,000 patients with at least 33 different diseases (Basra et al, 2008). In the DLQI, higher scores signify poorer quality of life, and patients with dermatologic diseases have scores typically ranging from 5 to 15. Bumps and growths Change and wash clothes worn during outdoor activities Dogs normally show signs of the disease between 3 months and 6 years of age, though atopic dermatitis can be so mild the first year that it does not become clinically apparent before the third year.

Take the Eczema Quiz! An itchy skin patch or patches Approximately two-thirds of the patients were followed for at least 2 years and the rest were followed for at least 5 years. From ages 2 to 26 years, more than 80% of patients reported having continued symptoms and/or use of topical medications to control symptoms. By age 20, approximately half of the patients had experienced at least one 6-month symptom- and medication-free period. Living in southern states, having a relative with an atopic illness, and exposure to pollen, wool, pets, cigarettes, fumes, some foods or drinks, and soaps/detergents were linked to persistent symptoms.

The impact of neurodermatits and psoriasisi on sexual function had been studied previously. Inconsistent with our data, Mercan S found that neurodermatitis patients had more sexual problems than the psoriasis counterpart12. The difference may be due to the sample size. There were only 31 patients with neurodermatitis and 24 patients with psoriasis, while the counterpart in our study are 149 and 246 respectively. Another comment is related to the questionnaire applied in the survey. DLQI was applied in our study while Arizona Sexual Experience Scale in Mercan's study. Although DLQI has question(Q9) about sexual life, it do not specifically evaluate sexual problems. Gender-specific sexual function scales and proper sample size will be needed in future study.
