Re: Neurological dermatitis
I was reading your posts and have not found many people with this condition. My husband was diagnosed with this 7 years ago. It's still as bad as it was then. Doctors tell him to stop scratching but they'll have to knock him out first. He has tried steriods: oral, creme, and this really cool (and overpriced) tape. Initially it looks like it might do the job then it all comes back with a vengeance. The biggest thing we found that works was going to the beach but we live in backwoods, MS. When we spent 2 weeks in Florida several years ago and he started to REALLY heal and not scratch. Somewhere between the salt and sun it was working but we haven't been able to duplicate our 2 weeks since then with work, kids and life interrupting my plans.
The part of his neurological dermatitis that is different from yours is his is on his legs, arms, and stomach (not so much the last two). He's not been diagnosed with any other illnesses except high cholesterol and occasional poor circulation in his legs. At this point he's tired of doctors and doesn't go except to his annuals to get his cholesterol meds renewed.
This is probably too much of a post but if any of you have some ideas let me know.
