Biografía Neurodermatitis (atopic eczema, atopic dermatitis) and psoriasis (psoriasis) are not contagious, inflammatory skin diseases, which often show redness and blotches. Neurodermatitis often occurs in combination with an allergy hair loss from seborrheic dermatitis. It has a distinct psychic component and is considered incurable. For those affected the dehydration of the skin and particularly the itching are the main concern, which can lead to further skin damage by scratching.

The psoriasis is therefore often painless and therefore runs for a long time almost unnoticed ("discrete course"). Patients suffer particularly from the negative reactions of the environment on the scaly skin spots, which can lead to social isolation.

Symptoms and progression:

With NEURODERMITIS, the skin loses its natural barrier function, becomes sensitive, reddened and dries out. It reacts more intensively to external stimuli such as abrasive clothing, sweating or cosmetics and is additionally reinforced by allergic reactions or incompatibilities treatment of seborrheic keratosis. Dry and strongly itchy skin conditions develop; the patients are found in a devil's circle of provocation factors that lead to itchy rash, which strengthens skin irritation by scratching and leads to further itching and complications. Skin lesions can lead to secondary infections with Staphylococcus bacteria or fungi.

Depending on the age and course of the disease, various symptoms and manifestations are possible:

    in infants, the typical milk scab, which can spread from the head
    in the acute phase of development reddened and swollen skin, which soaks and crusts
    forms (often on the sides of the extremities)
    later dry and chapped skin areas on the bowels of arms and legs, on the
    lateral neck, face, hands and joint bends. These areas are usually also
    in adults
    in young people often coarsened and dry skin around the eyelids, the face (forehead
    and throat), the back of the hand as well as the large joint bends.
    Often, optical changes of the skin and stressful symptoms such as itching and lack of sleep lead to psychological stress, which adversely affects the disease. On the other hand, the disease often ends for no apparent reason.

PSORIASIS is a system disease that affects joints, soft parts, blood vessels and the heart, and can promote the development of strokes and diabetes. The leading symptom is reddened, point-shaped to hand-held skin areas on the elbows, knees or the scalp, more rarely on the anus. These areas of the skin are scaly, arey-shaped and distinctly limpid. Strong itching can occur hair loss from seborrheic dermatitis but is not as central as in the case of atopic dermatitis. In addition, changes in the nails ("dimple" can be an early symptom) as well as to an abnormal hair loss due to damage to the hair follicles.
