Why is the control of pruritis so important in curing skin diseases?


Pruritis is medical speak for intense itching. There are at least a couple reasons why it so important to control/treat: 1) People can scratch themselves to distraction and actually have open wounds all over their body which are then open to more infection, and by extension, worse infections and diseases than the one they presented with. 2) Open skin sites can give further skin area for the presenting infection to spread and increase, so you can make the condition worse and bigger if you spread it by itching. 3) Human beings being what they are, if you itch an infectious skin condition and don't wash your hands well or at all (sigh), you can spread the condition to others. 4) You can also scratch and itch yourself so much that you can damage the tissues and create scar tissue that takes months and months to heal or may require skin grafting. Does that answer your question pretty comprehensively? Any other questions?  (+ info)

What is the reason for skin diseases on the rise nowadays?


Skin diseases is a pretty broad topic, but here are a few key points...

There is less high level ozone, so will be a steady growth in the number of skin cancer cases. Combine this with the sun worshiping that became prevalent in the 1960s (using baby oil and neck mirrors.. and there is no surprise.

Increasing incidences of allergies also play a role. The more scented stuff, weird proteins, and detergents we allow to sit on our skin day after day, the more likely we are to get diseases like eczema.

The final component is nutritional. The overall nutrition of Americans has declined significantly. There are many minerals, vitamins, and fats that are required to maintain the skin. Without these, it is just a question of time until the skin quality subsides.  (+ info)
