Neurological and Allergic Skin Disorders

Urticaria or hives is a very common allergic skin condition. It may be acute and long-lasting. It is marked by itch and bumps suddenly appearing on the skin similar to those resulting from contact with stinging nettle. They fade soon (within 24 hours) not leaving a mark after them.

There are many factors for the nettle rash. We will put them into two groups:

Exogenous or internal factors:

  • Physical (temperatures, exercises or chemicals)
  • Medications! (commonly antibiotics)
  • Foods (citrus, chocolate, nuts)
  • Emotional instability (stresses, overloads)
  • Endogenous or external factors:

  • Nervous system disorders
  • Sites of infection
  • Internal organ disorders
  • Quincke’s edema is worth special attention when facial skin can suddenly swell on lips and eyelids. Larynx swelling is very dangerous since it can block airways and result in suffocation. This can lead to life-threatening condition and calls for emergency.

    Atopic dermatitis, AD is a chronic recurring skin inflammation. It starts since birth and people who have the condition in family history may get it.

    It is an allergic disease and it has its causative agents which can be both internal and external like in hives.

    Eczema is a quite common, chronic, recurring skin condition typified by blisters raising on skin and developing due to change of skin reactivity. You can get eczema anywhere and in any age.

    True eczema results from nervous system disorders.

    Professional eczema results from long-term allergic inflammation sites on skin.

    Bacterial eczema forms due to an existing site of infection on skin.
