UrticariaItch is an irritation in the skin that elicits an urge to scratch. It is a common problem and can be localized (limited to one area of the body) or generalized (occurring all over the body or in several different areas). Complications of itching skin depend on the underlying disease, disorder and condition. Identifying and treating the underlying cause of itching skin is important to minimize any potential complications. In some cases, itching skin itself can lead to complications, especially if the itch-scratch cycle is severe and leads to a breakdown of the skin.
Hypertrophic ScarsA scar is the body’s natural way of healing and replacing damaged skin, usually composed of fibrous tissue. Following a skin injury sometimes the wound heals with production of excess repair tissue i.e. collagen, which then gets deposited in these scars resulting in either a hypertrophic or a keloid scar. Hypertrophic scars tend to regress in time becoming flatter and smoother however keloids may continue to expand in size for decades. Hypertrophic scars – In hypertrophic scars the excess collagen is deposited within the borders of the original injury. They may be painful and itchy and can occur in any area of the body. These scars may also appear red, and are usually thick and elevated.
Seborrheic dermatitisSeborrheic dermatitis is a common skin disorder characterized by itchy, red skin covered with white or yellow greasy scales. The areas rich in sebaceous glands are more commonly affected by this condition like the scalp, along the hairline, behind the ears, in the ear canal, on the eyebrows, around the nose, and/or on the chest. In infants, the condition is also called “cradle cap,” because of its characteristic scaly appearance on the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis in this age group usually clears up on its own within the first year. In adults, Seborrheic dermatitis is often referred to as dandruff. The condition is often intermittent
Fungal InfectionsFungal infections are the most common of all skin infections. They are particularly common in hot and humid climates. It is popularly known as ‘Ringworm’. Contrary to many of the other infections affecting humans, the fungi may cause dermatological conditions that do not involve tissue invasion. On the other hand, the skin surface becomes the habitat of some of these fungi and is liable to environmental contamination. The main group of fungal infections causing superficial fungal infections are Dermatophytes Yeasts and Moulds.
