Neurodermatitis is classified as a group of neuro-allergic pathologies. The disease is known and under other names - diathesis, eczema, as well as atopic dermatitis. Approximately 40% of the population have symptoms of this pathology. Let us consider them in more detail.
Clinical picture of neurodermatitis
The most common causes of pathology are disorders of the nervous system and the normal course of metabolic processes. Among provokers, diseases and external factors. But regardless of the causes, the symptoms of neurodermatitis have common symptoms:
- intense itching;
- rashes on the skin in the form of papules or flaking red spots;
- increased excitement;
In addition, people with diagnosed neurodermatitis are subject to increased sweat separation. They are often much more active sebaceous glands. Simultaneously with the neurodermatitis, there may be other chronic diseases of an allergenic nature, for example, bronchial asthma.
Treatment of pathologists based on symptoms
Seasonal manifestation of atopic neurodermatitis symptoms requires periodic treatment. In the summer the disease is extremely rare, relapses often occur in the winter. The main goal of treatment for exacerbation is to remove the inflammatory process. To do this, use:
- antihistamine preparations 1 and 2 types;
- external glucocorticosteroids;
- antiallergenic agents.
In the absence of a positive effect, systemic glucocorticosteroids are recommended.
In chronic course, sedatives are also prescribed.
With partial skin lesions, limited neurodermatitis is treated, the symptoms of which are manifested in the form of violent itching and papular eruptions. The task of physicians is to remove toxins from the body, to remove the characteristic symptomatology and to check the patient for parasitic or bacterial infections. Treatment includes:

Treatment of follicular neurodermatitis with symptoms developing on the scalp and the body, as in other cases, passes with the use of antihistamines and sedatives. With severe symptoms of neurodermatitis, treatment can take place in a complex manner using folk recipes.
