I went to my doctor and he said I have neurodermatitis. I have a small dark rash, about 1 inch by 1 inch, on my stomach near the right side of my hip. The dark area gets very itchy and seems really dry. My doctor told me to use LMX cream, a topical anesthetic. He said its all in my head and that there is no cure. He says I just need to lower my stress. Is there anything else I can do? This is the first time I've ever had this, and its been about 3 months and it still hasn't gotten better.

  • My derm. says I have neurodermatitis also, its a crock. They are just clueless, and this diagnosis will allow them to treat you indefinately, you need to go back every 6 weeks for re-evaluation. It is dumb, find someone else to see.

  • My diagnosis with neurodermatosis is totally different, I wonder if that is normal... I have itchy arms and legs with sporadic scabs that won't heal and develop thick scars.
