“The itching is hard to bear.” “Last night I scratched myself sore.” “My skin looks terrible.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their torturous skin disease when suffering from neurodermatitis.
Endogenous eczema or atopic dermatitis has a presentation that can be readily identified. The skin on the entire body is extremely dry. Redness as well as scaly skin can be found particularly behind the knees and in the crook of the arms. The skin can become crusty and often cracks. The greatest discomfort of neurodermatitis is the excruciating itching that causes those affected to suffer from sleeplessness.
Atopic eczema is a non-curable, genetic predisposition. It comes in cycles caused by or intensified by emotional distress or food intolerance. Often it is also caused by various allergies.
