Symptoms can persist or begin in adulthood. It is also the most common cause of occupational skin disease in adults. This disease results from an interaction between susceptibility genes, the host's environment, pharmacological abnormalities, skin barrier defects, and immunological factors. New management approaches have evolved from advances in our understanding of the pathobiology of this common skin disorder.

A retrospective study of 23 exposed women revealed nothing notable (Franssen 1999). Experimentally, coal tar products have, to some extent, demonstrated mutagenic or carcinogenic properties, but there has not yet been any indication of this in the longstanding and well-tried use of the group of substances employed therapeutically in humans.

There is a predilection for the nape of the neck, the ulnar border of the forearms, the wrists, the pretibial region, the dorsa of the feet, and the perianal and genital region. Atopic individuals are more prone than others to develop lichen simplex chronicus. Desensitisation Scopus (81) Fig 1 Skin Allergies Background: Neurodermatitis is a common chronic skin disease. Although not life-threatening, it can produce an important psychosocial burden, sleep disturbance and sexual dysfunction. Patients with neurodermatitis tend to have poor social skills or interpersonal resources and a lack of flexibility. However quality of life (QoL) of patients with neurodermatitis has seldom investigated. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of neurodermatitis on patients' QoL using the Dermatology Life Quality Index questionnaire, and assess its feasibility and internal consistency.

Expression of genetic predisposition to allergy is determined by a diverse influence of an environment, triggering factors. There are food, inhalation, external stimuli, psycho-emotional and other factors. Contact with these factors can occur in everyday life, and in the industrial conditions (professional factors).

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. [30, 31, 32] Images in this article Scopus (686) Government The earliest descriptions of AD have referred to it as “neurodermatitis” due to the belief that the itch and scratch cycle, which results in a rash, was related to nerves and emotions. Though a lot more has been learned about immunopathogenesis of AD, recognition of itching and scratching as hallmarks of this disease remains true. Itching is often worse at night. Chronic sleep disturbance due to frequent scratching can have adverse effects on the patient and his/her immediate family members and is a source of significant stress. When subjects with AD get upset, they tend to itch even more, probably secondary to flushing of the skin due to vasodilatation induced by neurogenic peptides, followed by histamine and prostaglandin E2 (Ostlere, Cowen et al. 1995). Papules, lichenification, and eczematous lesions result from repeated skin trauma. Vesicles and erythema with excoriation of the skin are seen in acute eczema. Crusted lesions and pustules are seen in infected eczema. Allergens, irritants (wool, soap, detergents, heat and humidity with sweating), infections, and certain foods can worsen eczema, and such history helps establish the right diagnosis. Distribution of rash on the face and extensor surfaces in infants and young children, changing to mostly flexural involvement in older ages, is a classic finding of AD and one of the essential features required to make this diagnosis. Dry skin (xerosis), personal and family history of allergic diseases, palmar hyperlinearity, nipple eczema, kera-tosis pilaris, pityriasis alba, and non-specific hand or foot dermatitis are some of the other clinical manifestations of this condition (Leung and Bieber 2003; Leung, Jain et al. 2003). The impact of AD on self-esteem and social interactions of kids or adults with this condition cannot be underestimated (Lapidus and Kerr 2001). Migraine or HeadacheWhat's the Difference?
