One patient with neurodermatitis answered 3 questions and 1 patient with psoriasis vulgaris answered 2 questions. One patient with psoriasis did not list the age and 2 did not specify the gender. Table ​Table11 shows the demographic characteristics of both groups. Mean ages were 37.97 ± 14.45 (range 18-83, median 35) and 34.33 ± 13.84 (range 16-80, median 32) years for patients with neurodermatitis and psoriasis, respectively. The disease duration ranged from 0.03 to 480 months (mean 32.27, median 12) for patients with neurodermatitis, while the counterpart ranged from 0.5 to 552 months (mean 75.64, median 36). The two groups were matched for gender and age. The disease groups differed significantly in employment status, educational level, address, duration and age. Patients with neurodermatitis experienced high level of education and short disease duration.

Clinical implications are discussed. Dermatitis Atópica en Niños Prophylactic medical examination of patients One hundred and fifty consecutive outpatients seeking treatment for neurodermatitis and 250 patients with psoriasis in the Department of Dermatology, the Second Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, were assessed for eligibility for this prospective study from July 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011. All subjects were given informed consent prior to participation. Patients less than 18 years old or having any other skin/systemic disease or mental disorders were excluded from the study.

TV-Tipps Lichen simplex chronicus, also known as neurodermatitis circumscripta, is a very common chronic skin disease (present in up to 12% of the population) that is more often seen in women (Thaipisuttikul, 1998; Burgin, 2008; Stander and Metze, 2009). It is associated with a variety of psychologic problems, including demoralization, depression, anxiety, obsessive‐compulsive disorder, and sleep disturbances (Burgin, 2008). It may also have negative effects on the patient's quality of life (Abeck, 2005; Chuh et al, 2006). There are few reports about sexual function disorders associated with skin diseases (Türel Ermertcan et al, 2006; Ergun et al, 2007; Sukan and Maner, 2007; Mercan et al, 2008; Ermertcan, 2009). In this study, we compared the sexual function in female patients with neurodermatitis with that in healthy controls.

There are apps you can use to watch your area’s pollen counts. On days that the pollens are high for the trees or grasses you are allergic to, you can take these actions to lessen the amount of pollens you are exposed to: Infectious and parasitic diseases If you suspect any type of skin problem or skin disorder, consult your doctor, skin specialist or dermatologist immediately. Neurodermatitis can present itself with other common skin conditionsm like eczema and psoriasis. Programs Trace Elements 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.

Scheibenstrasse 20, 3014 Berne Add to favorites Current evidence has shown that nonlesional skin is not normal skin, owing to persistent subclinical inflammation throughout the body.1-4 Chronic skin inflammation can be orchestrated by a mixture of activated immune and epidermal cells and can lead to pruritic lesion development.5-11 A growing consensus sees the epidermal layer of skin in atopic dermatitis as primed to react to environmental triggers, with signs and symptoms resulting from underlying hyperactivity in the deeper layers.2 Thinking that the patch(es) itches for no apparent reason Search: Resources Community Infection: Signs of infection include honey-colored crusts and fluid leaking from the area.

NEXT QUESTION: PubMed Immune deficiency diseases Family & Pregnancy Grants from outside organizations Quality of life of the patients with neurodermatitis was assessed with the Turkish version of the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI). 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. Neurodermatitis cause has not been established definitively. According to modern concepts, neurodermatitis is the genetically determined disease with multifactorial inheritance of predisposition to allergic reactions. Importance of genetic factors is confirmed by a high rate of disease among close relatives and monozygotic twins. According to an immunogenetic study, neurodermatitis is significantly associated with HLA B-12 and DR4.

The humanized monoclonal antibody nemolizumab inhibits IL-31 signaling via binding to interleukin-31 receptor A. This phase 2 randomized trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of nemolizumab in patients with AD. The 12-week study included 264 patients with moderateto- severe AD that did not respond to topical agents. Patients were assigned to receive subcutaneous nemolizumab 0.1, 0.5, or 2.0 mg/kg or placebo every 4 weeks. (An exploratory group received nemolizumab 2.0 mg/kg every 8 weeks.) There were 216 study completers. Percentage change on a pruritus visual analog scale in the 4-week treatment groups was -43.7% with the 0.1 mg/kg dose of nemolizumab, -59.8% with the 0.5 mg/kg dose, and -63.1% with the 2.0 mg/kg dose, compared to -20.9% with placebo. Changes on the Eczema Area and Severity Index were -23.0%, -42.3%, -40.9% in the three nemolizumab dose groups compared to -26.6% with placebo. Changes in body surface area affected were -7.5%, -20.0%, -19.4%, and -15.7%, respectively. Treatment discontinuation rate was 13% in the nemolizumab 20 mg/kg dose group and 17% in all other groups. At all monthly doses studied, nemolizumab reduced pruritus scores in patients with moderate to severe AD. The study supports an approach targeting IL-31 receptor A in patients with AD. Within its limitations, the study suggests that a nemolizumab dose of 0.5 mg/kg every 4 weeks provides the best risk-benefit profile.
