What is Neurodermatitis?

Neurodermatitis is a chronic inflammation of the skin with itchiness, redness, wetness, scaling and the formation of scabs. Neurodermatitis is caused by hypofunction of the sebaceous and sweat glands which lead to allergic skin reactions.

Ca. 5 % of adults and 10 to 20% of children have neurodermatitis. About 70% of the children are completely and naturally healed by the time they reach puberty. Neurodermatitis usually appears in infancy for the first time.

Causes of Neurodermatitis

The cause of neurodermatitis is up to this day still unclear. A genetic disposition along with additional trigger factors (allergies, stress etc…) all play a role in the development of neurodermatitis.
The illness recurs in episodes particularly in emotionally strenuous situations.


Treatment of Neurodermatitis

Neurodermatitis is to this day incurable. It is only possible to abate the symptoms of neurodermatitis.

Treatment Strategies:

  • Creating emotional stability e.g. with the help of relaxation techniques
  • Treating the itchiness
  • Treating the dry skin with for e.g. fatty ointments or bathing with lipid-replenishing substances.
  • Anti-inflammatory ointments

Possible Complications with Neurodermatitis

Staphylococcal and herpes simplex virus infections are particularly dangerous.
