Neurodermatitis is a hard, patchy scale most often limited to the upper nape of your neck. It is most common in middle-aged women and, as the name suggests, is associated with nerves and the nervous system.
Although neurodermatitis can be incredibly itchy, try not to scratch. This constant physical trauma can aggravate the condition by making your scalp bleed and potentially making the flakes even harder.
Treatment for Neurodermatitis
Clearing neurodermatitis takes time. However, we do offer treatments at the Philip Kingsley Clinics with prescription creams that soothe inflammation, discourage build-up of the plaques and also reduce skin cell turnover.
For more information on the treatment of neurodermatitis please contact our London or New York Clinic.
