Symptoms of atopic dermatitis?

Symptoms of atopic dermatitis?

Itching.: Atopic dermatitis is an itch that rashes (as opposed to a rash that itches) - it's the itching that comes first, and scratching it that causes the rash. The itchiest areas are typically crooks of arms, backs of knees, and sides of neck, although other areas can be involved. Most kids outgrow it, although an unfortunate minority do not. Treatment depends on location and severity. ...Read more

What are  nummular dermatitis symptoms?

Nummular derm: Topical steroids are effective. Less erythematous, less pruritic lesions may be treated with low-potency (class iii-vi) steroids. Severely inflamed lesions with intense erythema, vesicles, and pruritus require high-potency (class i-ii) preparations.

Mild Psoriasis sufferer, chronic pain right forarm & elbow. Blood tests 80 titre ana, positive anticentromere. Psoriatic arthritis or scleroderma?

Mild Psoriasis sufferer, chronic pain right forarm & elbow. Blood tests 80 titre ana, positive anticentromere. Psoriatic arthritis or scleroderma?

Occam's Razor: Usually Systemic Sclerosis and/or limited Scleroderma is not characterized by arthritis like you describe. The typical biomarker the anti Scl-70 (anti-topoisermorase). Symptoms have to be put into context and better described than elbow and forearm pain. This one you should see a rheumatologist about. Dermatology would be useful as well. Best of luck! ...Read more

Biopsy petechiae right arm: spongiotic psoriasiform dermatitis w/purpura. Drug eruption in a pt. W/underlying psoriasis or eruptive psoriasis exacerbated by a drug. What does this mean? Drug allergy?

Biopsy petechiae right arm: spongiotic psoriasiform dermatitis w/purpura. Drug eruption in a pt. W/underlying psoriasis or eruptive psoriasis exacerbated by a drug. What does this mean? Drug allergy?

See your doctor: This is what is called a "descriptive" path report. In these cases we construct a list of conditions that can produce this type of reaction pattern then try to narrow it down if possible. In these cases a good solid history needs to be taken to identify any possible cause (drug or other). I am afraid this can be a challenging process and sometimes we do not find the actual diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more
