Symptoms of Neurodermatitis
Symptoms of Neurodermatitis: Introduction
Neurodermatitis is characterized by an intense itch-scratch-itch cycle that is hard to break. In this cycle scratching does not relieve the itch and leads to increased inflammation, more intense itching, and harder scratching.
It is generally very difficult to break the itch-scratch-itch cycle. Frequent and intense scratching can also result in thickening of the affected skin and a leathery appearance of the skin. Symptoms of neurodermatitis also include scaly skin.
In severe cases, the scratching cycle can lead to complications from the development of open breaks and lesions in the skin. Complications include a secondary bacterial infection of the surrounding skin and tissues. This is called cellulitis and can be potentially serious, even life-threatening for some people, such as those with compromised immune systems....more about Neurodermatitis »
