Partner bereavement and risk of psoriasis and atopic eczema: cohort studies in the United Kingdom and Denmark.
CONCLUSIONS: We found a modest increase in risk of atopic eczema within three years following bereavement, which peaked in the first three months. Acute stress may play a role in triggering onset of new atopic eczema or relapse of atopic eczema previously in remission. We observed no evidence for increased long-term risk of psoriasis and atopic eczema following bereavement. PMID: 31782133 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Many different factors and conditions can lead to an itchy rash, including eczema, skin allergies, and psoriasis. Read about some of them here.
Discussion: The results of our pilot study confirm the efficacy and tolerability of this new topical formulation in a real-life assessment and patients showed strong adherence to therapy. These promising results - still to be confirmed on a larger number of patients - emphasize the potential SEB has in controlling the chronic inflammation of seborrheic dermatitis.

Abstract Topical corticosteroids are widely used to treat inflammatory or pruritic skin conditions. The impact of systemic absorption of topical corticosteroids on the risk of hyperglycemia, and subsequent type 2 diabetes is unclear. Andersen et al. aimed to determine if topical corticosteroid use for psoriasis and eczema,1 which affect 2-3% and 2-8% of adults worldwide, respectively, is associated with an increased risk of newly-diagnosed type 2 diabetes.2,3.

T helper (Th) type 17 and Th2 cells mediate psoriasis and eczema, respectively. Some dermatoses exhibit overlapping clinicopathologic features, and their immunopathology is relatively unexplored.
I've had a patch of flaky skin on and in my ears for sometime now, but only recently did this "condition" spread to my eyelids. Doctors have all kinds of names for this condition, including psoriasis, dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, and, when it gets into the eye lashes, blepharitis.The doctor may or may not tell you that the cause of these skin and eyebrow problems is often (1) a bacterial infection--because this makes us feel unclean and germy, or (2) an infection by Demodex folliculorum, a microscopic mite that lives in the hair follicles of the eyebrow and eats dead skin. The doctor...
The root bark of Dictamnus dasycarpus Turcz. has been successfully used for the treatment of inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and pruritus. However, the anti-psoriatic effect of this plant has not unti...

Thus, in modern spectra of human health, bioactive foods play a pivotal role. Under the umbrella of food and nutrition security, functional dairy foods have become the need of the hour. Sheep milk is one of the functionally active dairy foods and it is also considered as nutritional powerhouse. The beneficial role of sheep milk results from its fatt...
Dermatologic immune-related adverse events (IRaes) are among the most frequent toxicities reported with anti –programmed cell death (PD)-1 or anti–programmed cell death ligand (PD-L1) therapies, affecting up to 40% of treated patients [1,2]. They have been associated with a variety of dermatologic manifestations including eczema-like rash, pruritus, lichenoid reactions, induction or reactivation of pre existing psoriasis, vitiligo and granulomatous reactions . They may also induce or reactivate autoimmune skin diseases .
