Systemic contact dermatitis SCD is a mucocutaneous reaction that results from a systemic distribution of a contact allergen. This condition has been widely reported to occur after the exposure to some drugs known as baboon syndrome , foods or dental materials. The clinical image is diverse and some cutaneous manifestations may encompass vesicular hand eczema, symmetrical intertriginous and flexural exanthema or lichenoid mucosal eruption in the vulvar area of females. In more severe cases, there is an involvement of large body surfaces that can lead to a development of diffuse scaling dermatitis or even exfoliative erythroderma [ 1 , 2 ]. The modern lifestyle and progressive industrial development lead to a growing exposure to different metals such as nickel, chromium, cobalt or zinc, what increases the prevalence of contact allergy reactions in the society. Nickel is the most widespread contact allergen in our environment and represents a common component of different alloys, jewelry, foods or kitchen utensils, what undoubtedly makes the way of exposure to this metal very distinguished [ 3 ].
Pruritis Ani Expanded Version | ASCRS
Corticosteroids, often known as steroids, are an anti-inflammatory medicine prescribed for a wide range of conditions. Corticosteroids will only be prescribed if the potential benefits of treatment outweigh the risks. They will also be prescribed at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. There aren't usually any severe side effects if you take steroid injections, a steroid inhaler, or a short course of steroid tablets. If you have troublesome side effects after taking corticosteroids, don't stop taking your medication until your doctor says it's safe to do so, because of the possibility of these unpleasant withdrawal effects. Your dose may need to be reduced slowly over a few weeks or months, and you may have to have tests to ensure that your adrenal glands are still working properly before stopping corticosteroids altogether, if you have been taking them for a long time.
The role of topical steroids in the treatment of primary pruritus ani: a systematic review
Pruritus ani is a common condition with many causes, predominately anorectal pathology. There are some new insights and therapies, but the most recommendations are based on low-level evidence. A review of the evidence is presented and a management plan based on the elimination of irritants and scratching, general control measures and active treatment measures is offered.
Further updated in January Periorificial dermatitis is a common facial skin problem characterised by groups of itchy or tender small red papules. It is given this name because the papules occur around the eyes, the nostrils, the mouth and occasionally, the genitals. The more restrictive term, perioral dermatitis, is often used when the eruption is confined to the skin in the lower half of the face, particularly around the mouth.
