Example text

Causes of generalized pruritus with skin changes This occurs in more widespread inflammatory skin diseases such as widespread eczema/psoriasis, scabies, allergic drug eruptions (antibiotics, anticonvulsants), graft versus host disease (following bone marrow transplantation), prebullous pemphigoid (dermatitic eruption before blisters appear), cutaneous lymphoma (may start over the buttocks as more localized disease), parasitophobia (belief that there are parasites under the skin; excoriations are seen), body lice or pubic lice (body lice live in the clothing), viral exanthems (rashes associated with systemic viral illness), urticaria (generalized ‘hives’), xerosis (dry skin, especially in the elderly).

Varicose eczema (leg ulcer) patients should have their ABPI (ankle brachial pressure index) measured before compressing their legs with bandages. The ABPI is the ratio of their arm to ankle systolic blood pressure. 1). 16). In general the more a person is exposed to a potential allergen (quantity and frequency) the more likely they are to develop an allergy. g. those with eczema) are more likely to develop contact dermatitis and suffer from irritant reactions than those with normal skin. Patients develop an allergic skin reaction at the site of sensitization to an allergen and then on subsequent exposure at a distant skin site develop eczema simultaneously at previous sites of allergy.

Management can be difficult but avoidance of sunlight is helpful. Pressure urticaria Urticarial wheals occur at the site of pressure on the skin, characteristically around the waistband area (from clothing), shoulders (from carrying a backpack), soles of feet (from walking), hands (using tools), buttocks (from sitting), genitals (sexual intercourse). The urticarial rash may occur immediately but a delay of up to 6 hours can occur (delayed pressure urticaria), and lesions resolve over several days.
