The average inter-item correlation was 0.415 (>0.2), suggesting good reliability. The item-total correlation ranged from 0.483 to 0.711. The average item-total correlation was 0.628. Hamid Q Scopus (45) Department of Dermatology, Celal Bayar University, Manisa, Turkey 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).

[8] AD has enormous morbidity, and the incidence and prevalence appear to be increasing. Further, AD is the first disease to present in a series of allergic diseases such as food allergy, asthma, and allergic rhinitis (in order), provoking the “atopic march” theory, which suggests that early or severe AD and cutaneous sensitization to environmental allergens may lead to subsequent allergic disease at other epithelial barrier surfaces (eg, gastrointestinal or respiratory tract). This hypothesis is supported by cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. [1] Br J Dermatol. 1998; 138: 182-187 The itch prevents you from sleeping or focusing on your daily routines showvte Fox S.

In lichen simplex chronicus (neurodermatitis), the nerves in the skin appear be overly ready to tell the brain that there is itch.
