WELCOME TO HEALTH CARE MAGIC
I CAN UNDERSTAND YOUR CONCERN TOWARDS YOUR MOTHER
I HAD GONE THROUGH YOUR MOTHER SYMPTOMS, SHE IS HAVING ITCHING SINCE 3-4 MONTYHS AND IT HAS NOT BEEN REDUCED IN SPITE OF TAKING ABOVE MENTION DRUGS.
ACCORDING TO ME SHE IS HAVING NEURODERMATITIS. IT IS A TYPE OF DERMATITIS, WITHOUT ANY PATHOLOGICAL CONDITION.IT MAY BE DUE TO TENSION,STRESS OR EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCE.ITS MORE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL
KINDLY VISIT YOUR NEAREST PSYCHIATRIST FOR COUNCIL LING AND SPEAK TO YOUR MOM REGARDING ANY OF HER PROBLEMS
IF SHE IS NOT FEELING BETTER WITH ABOVE MEDICATION , ASK YOUR DERMATOLOGIST TO START WITH MILD STEROID OINTMENTS FOR THE RELIEF.
I HOPE I HAVE CLEARED YOUR QUERY TO SOME EXTENT
