When Neuro- meets -dermatosis you get…..a neurotic with case of the itchies .
Seriously speaking, neurodermatosis is the term for any skin disease, defect or lesion that is proximally caused by neurotic behavior — things such as vigorous scratching or compulsive skin picking. The parent-term for any skin disease is dermatosis. The origin of a neurodermatosis is said to be psychosomatic, not environmental. There are a whole host of reasons for picking and injuring the skin to the point that a neurodermatosis results.
