That itching feeling that is normal for dry patches of skin may have no effect on some people and a chronic effect on others. The incidence of neurodermatitis, which is also known as atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema, and of psoriasis have increased in the last ten to fifteen years. Neurodermatitis is characterized by chronic itching or scaling of the skin. It starts with a patch of itchy skin, which leads to scratching. Scratching makes the affected area even itchier and the sufferer scratches a little more until he or she scratches out of habit. Chronic itching and scratching can cause the affected area to become thick and leathery. It is therefore essential to break this itch-scratch cycle.

[Medline]. Taylor B IgE reactivity Depression If stress or anxiety is a constant in your life, the following may be necessary to get rid of the itch: Middel P Enhanced expression of eotaxin and CCR3 in atopic dermatitis. Dry skin Many sufferers experience severe itching. Scratching will temporarily get rid of the itching but it damages the skin, which in turn encourages itching. The aim of treatment is to break this vicious circle between itching, scratching and deterioration in the skin's appearance. Various measures may be helpful in this situation, e.g. cooling, skin-friendly and breathable fabrics, compresses and dressings with black tea, table salt or ointments.

Most commonly appears on the lower legs, ankles, back and sides of the neck, wrists, forearms, and genitals.

Updated: Nov 15, 2017 As showed in Table ​Table2,2, there was no patient in stage 0 and IV for both groups. 31(20.81%) patients with neurodermatitis in stage I, 108(72.48%) in stage II, 10(6.71%) in stage III, while the counterpart in psoriasis was 23(9.35%), 98(39.84%) and 125(50.81%). Patients with neurodermatitis reported a significantly lower subjective disease severity than patients with psoriasis.

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.

Inflammation is stagnant, has a bluish tinge. The skin is infiltrated; lichenification with multiple biopsy scratchings, hemorrhagic crusts is present.
