Neurodermatitis or atopic dermatitis is among the most frequent eczemas. It occurs especially during childhood but also among adults, and is often dominated by excruciating itching. A holistic therapy is required and performed at Hautcentrum Wiesbaden (Wiesbaden Skin Center) in particular for treating serious cases since psychological factors play an important part along with the allergological aspects.
Teamwork between conventional medicine and naturopathy has proven effective in dealing with this complex clinical pattern. Various naturopathic methods and UV irradiation (UVB, balneophototherapy) are applied in addition to therapeutic agents acting locally or on the entire system.
