Dr. Lefkowicz is a Board-Certified dermatologist specializing in general and cosmetic dermatology. Neurodermatitis is a particularly unpleasant skin condition. Find out what it is and how to treat with our in-depth guide.Neurodermatitis is a condition that tends to affect more women than men, and is more prevalent among those aged 30-50. It is characterised by a persistent itch that can cause a host of related problems.Unfortunately, there’s very little that is known for sure about this skin condition.What causes neurodermatitis?The biggest question around neurodermatitis is its cause. And on that score scientists have no definite answers.Despite a noted prevalence among certain parts of the population, and a link to stress and anxiety, there is no definitive answer to what causes neurodermatitis.Here’s what we do know: neurodermatitis starts as a small patch of itchy skin. The itch can be very intense, and frequent, and it can become so uncomfortable that it disrupts sleep.The repetitive scratching or rubbing of the itchy skin means that the affected area eventually becomes thick and leathery, and may become infected if the skin is broken. While neurodermatitis isn’t contagious, the original site may develop into several itchy spots on the body.So how do you stop something when you don’t know what causes it?Treating neurodermatitisThe current approach to neurodermatitis treatment is targeted towards symptoms.Doctors try to reduce the effects of the condition by administering antihistamines, corticosteroids and other anti-inflammatories. The idea here is to reduce itching so that the skin can heal.In cases where anxiety or stress are suspected as contributing to the condition, anti-anxiety medication is also used.The key here is that neurodermatitis is best treated by a doctor. If you find yourself suffering from constant itching, your best bet is to visit your dermatologist.

Series 3014 Berne Text-to-Speech: Enabled The term ‘prurigo nodularis’ (see p. 670) is used for lesions with a nodular clinical appearance and prominent epidermal hyperplasia of pseudoepitheliomatous rather than psoriasiform type. At times, lesions with overlapping clinical and histopathological features of both lichen simplex chronicus and prurigo nodularis are found. Prurigo nodularis is one condition in which the histological picture often lags behind the clinical appearance. The author has seen numerous cases, regarded by experienced dermatologists as prurigo nodularis, in which the histological picture was that of lichen simplex chronicus. These symptoms can appear simultaneously or in varying degrees. The eczema appears on typical areas of skin, depending on the sufferer’s age. During infancy it mainly affects the face, the upper body, hands and extensor surfaces of the arms and legs. In small children, the episodes mainly occur in the hollows of the knees, elbows, on the face, neck and throat. Hand and foot eczema may additionally be observed in older children, adolescents and adults. What are the symptoms of secondary syphilis?

Neurodermatitis has so frequently been used to discuss any skin eruption associated with anxiety that it has become less specific as a diagnosis. It was intended to refer to localized circumscribed patches of lichenified skin associated with itching. Without proper knowledge of its etiology or its appearance it can be confused with many other conditions, resulting in poor management. The authors characterize the diagnosis as it was intended and give a capsule description of its appearance, differential diagnosis, prognosis and management. rash | lichen simplex chronicus rash | neurodermatitis rash | atopic eczema
