Oral Care Foundation Governing Board Article Tools September 13, 2018  Vol. 379  No. 11 Menu Infectious Disease Scopus (162) Webinars Neurodermatitis is a chronic, severely pruritic disorder characterized by 1 or more lichenified plaques in which the skin is thickened and there are accentuated skin markings. It affects adults, predominantly from ages 30 to 50 years. Women are affected more commonly than men. It may lead to demoralization, sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression, obsessive‐compulsive disorder, and distress through its impact on the patient's well‐being (Burgin, 2008). If the patient suffers from psychologic problems, the lesions are more likely to be persistent (Stander and Metze, 2009). Whether emotional factors are secondary to the primary dermatologic disease or they are primary and causative (altering perception of itch) is unclear. It has been postulated that neurotransmitters that affect mood, such as dopamine, serotonin, and opioid peptides, modulate perception of itch via descending spinal pathways (Burgin, 2008).

Type 4 phosphodiesterase inhibitors have clinical and in vitro anti-inflammatory effects in atopic dermatitis. Association of atopic dermatitis to the beta subunit of the high affinity immunoglobulin E receptor. Neurodermatitis can clear completely. Sometimes, it can take time to find a treatment plan that works for you. You may have to try different treatment options. Each time, it is essential that you follow your treatment plan. Neurodermatitis rarely goes away without treatment. Audiobooks Book Depository Availability of board-certified allergists Comments by Chitra Dinakar, MD: This is certainly exciting: a therapeutic option that helps attenuate the signs and symptoms of AD, including pruritus and sleep effects; causes clinically meaningful reductions in patient-reported anxiety and depression; improves health-related quality of life; and can be administered subcutaneously weekly or every 2 weeks. In two independent 4-month randomized trials of identical design (to provide replication of results), injection-site reactions and conjunctivitis were the most frequent adverse effects. The etiology of the conjunctivitis was not clear; this finding was not seen in studies of dupilumab in asthma and sinusitis and polyposis. While trials of longer duration are needed to assess efficacy and other safety issues, a once every 2 weeks subcutaneous shot may be a tolerable option to these long-suffering patients.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with colonization and increased risk of infections with Staphylococcus aureus. However, it's unclear how the skin microbiome during infancy affects the incidence of AD. This prospective study evaluated the effects of skin microbiome on the risk of developing AD during the first year of life. The study included 50 randomly selected infants from an Irish birth cohort study. Skin swabs from four sites relevant to AD were collected at 2 days and 2 and 6 months of age, with bacterial 16S rRNA gene sequencing and analysis performed directly from clinical samples. Patterns and changes in bacterial skin colonization were analyzed for association with the incidence of AD at 1 year. The types and diversity of bacteria in the skin microbiome changed significantly between sampling periods. In contrast to patients with established AD, occurrence of infantile AD was not associated with skin dysbiosis or colonization with S. aureus. Development of AD during the first year of life was associated with significant differences in bacterial communities detected in swabs from the antecubital fossa at 2 months. In particular, commensal staphylococci were significantly less abundant in infants who went on to develop AD. The skin microbiome was unrelated to mode of delivery or feeding method. Skin colonization with S. aureus does not appear to occur before the development of AD in infants. Early colonization with commensal staphylococci may have a protective effect against infantile AD. The authors emphasize the need for further research to understand the pathophysiology and mechanisms by which the skin microbiome affects the development of skin immunity and AD.

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.

In the dermis perivascular infiltrates of lymphocytes with an admixture of neutrophils are present. In older foci, except acanthosis, hyperkeratosis and parakeratosis, sometimes, spongiosis are expressed. In the dermis dilatation of capillaries with endothelial swelling, around which small infiltrates of the lymphatic and histiocytic nature with a significant number of fibroblasts can be seen. In the central part of lesion focus pigment is not detected in the basal layer, whereas in peripheral parts of it, particularly in older foci of lichenification, melanin amount is increased.
