Meet your dermatologist for neurodermatitis treatment in Calicut

Think about having an itch that’s so unbearable that no amount of scratching would relieve it, and you’ll get a sense of how neurodermatitis feels. 

Neurodermatitis, also known as lichen simplex chronicus, is a kind of chronic eczema that causes a person to scratch or massage the afflicted region of skin repeatedly. Itching causes people to scratch, and continued scratching may develop thicker, leathery areas of skin. Affected parts of the body include the face, scalp, wrists, ankles, and genitalia. Neurodermatitis has a complex aetiology that likely involves interactions between genetics, the environment, and the mind.

What are the causes of neurodermatitis?

Neurodermatitis (lichen simplex chronicus) causes chronic itching and scratching. Genetic, environmental, and psychological variables are thought to induce neurodermatitis. Neurodermatitis may be more common in families with atopic dermatitis or other allergies. Irritants, allergies, and dry skin may worsen the problem. Stress, worry, and mental anguish may also cause and worsen neurodermatitis. Itching and scratching may irritate and thicken the skin, causing a chronic, self-perpetuating illness. Neurodermatitis management entails avoiding triggers, treating psychological problems, and using proper skincare and therapy.
