Allergy prevention Sexual dysfunction in many dermatological diseases has recently attracted significant attention, because of its negative impact on quality of life. The impact of neurodermatits and psoriasisi on sexual function had been studied previously. Inconsistent with our data, Mercan S found that neurodermatitis patients had more sexual problems than the psoriasis counterpart12. The difference may be due to the sample size. There were only 31 patients with neurodermatitis and 24 patients with psoriasis, while the counterpart in our study are 149 and 246 respectively. Another comment is related to the questionnaire applied in the survey. DLQI was applied in our study while Arizona Sexual Experience Scale in Mercan's study. Although DLQI has question(Q9) about sexual life, it do not specifically evaluate sexual problems. Gender-specific sexual function scales and proper sample size will be needed in future study. Scientists have presented a new drug for smoothing the symptoms of menopause The impact of neurodermatitis on sexual function is of interest because the disease can limit a person's ability to perform essential life tasks and social roles. Moreover, sexual dysfunction may also cause significant personal distress and negatively impact quality of life (Thaipisuttikul, 1998; Abeck, 2005; Chuh et al, 2006; Burgin, 2008). In our study, we used the DLQI to evaluate the quality of life of patients. The mean DLQI score of 11.95 is similar to the mean scores of 11.20 and 10.53 reported for atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, respectively (Basra et al, 2008). The scores on question 9 of the DLQI showed that neurodermatitis affected sexual function in our patients. Consistent with this observation, previous studies have revealed a higher prevalence of sexual dysfunction in patients with chronic pain (Monga et al, 1998; Ambler et al, 2001). Sexual dysfunction in female patients with fibromyalgia has been demonstrated (Tikiz et al, 2005), and sexual status and erectile dysfunction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease have been suggested (Koseoglu et al, 2005). Sexual dysfunction studies on other systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, chronic liver disease, allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, epilepsy, chronic renal failure, and multiple sclerosis have also been performed (Ermertcan, 2009).

Surprising Health Benefits of Sex The occurrence of gestational diabetes should be considered with tacrolimus therapy. In cases involving long-term prenatal therapy in the second and/or third trimesters, the newborn should be monitored for transient renal insufficiency and hyperkalemia. This applies to tacrolimus, everolimus, and sirolimus. There are insufficient data concerning the safety of first-trimester use of sirolimus, everolimus, and mycophenolate mofetil. From the 200 pregnancies exposed to tacrolimus no substantial teratogenic risk can be concluded. However, the use of these drugs does not require termination of pregnancy. A detailed fetal ultrasound examination should be offered to confirm normal morphologic development in cases of first-trimester exposure. Whether the immunosuppressant therapy of a transplanted woman who is stable on her medication should be changed is a question of risk–benefit assessment, because there is little experience in human pregnancies.

We found Q1 (symptoms) accounted for 50.80% of the variance in DLQI score in this setting. The scree plot showed a sharp drop in eigenvalues from the first to the second component, with subsequent components extracting progressively less of the variance. This indicated that a one-dimensional solution is to be preferred (Fig. ​(Fig.1).1). The loadings of the DLQI items are given in Table ​Table6.6.

This condition is associated with many factors, including the scratch-itch cycle, psychological stressors, and atopy. LSC is more common between ages 35 and 50 and is seen approximately twice as often in women compared to men.[3] Saurat JH Happiness - Test your emotional IQ Practice Essentials Continuing Medical Education License Academy content, products, and services Register Now Quality of life scales and sexual function scales applied to both women and men (eg, ASEX) have been used in current publications. General health questionnaires and dermatology‐specific quality of life scales may have some questions about sexual life, but they do not specifically evaluate sexual problems. Because female and male sexual functions are physiologically different entities, gender‐specific sexual function scales, such as FSFI and International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire (IIEF) are preferred (Ermertcan, 2009).

There is no cure, but many treatments can help improve the skin's condition, making life easier. In those for whom these treatments do not work well or who fear their long‐term effects, there is often a belief that either something in their diet, or something missing in their diet, is making their eczema worse. Vidal’s disease (syn.: lichen simplex chronicus Vidal, dermatitis lichenoides pruriens Neisser) is clinically manifested by one or more strongly dry itchy plaques, located mainly on the posterolateral surfaces of the neck, in the folds of skin and surrounded by small papular elements and minor pigmentation, mildly turning into normal skin. Sometimes in the areas of scratching depigmentation develops. In the presence of pronounced infiltration and lichenification, hypertrophic warty foci of lesions can occur. Rare variants include depigmented, linear, moniliform, decalvans, psoriasiform neurodermatitis, and Pautrier’s giant lichenification. Lichen simplex chronicus (also called “neurodermatitis”) is a chronic eczematous eruption of the skin that is the result of scratching (Fig. 8.13). Pruritus precedes the scratching and may be precipitated by frustration, depression, and stress. The scratching then causes the lichenification and further itching, resulting in an “itch–scratch–itch” cycle that perpetuates the process.
