Neurodermatitis: Can Cannabis Help Treating It?
Its not as it anyone actually likes having an itchy skin. It isn’t just uncomfortable, but it also looks very unhealthy, especially with all those scaly, dry skin and blisters. Itchiness can be caused by many factors and Neurodermatitis is one of these.
Neurodermatitis, also known as lichen simplex chronicus, is a skin disease which makes skin very itchy which leads to scratching. However, with this condition, the more you scratches your skin the itchier it becomes. Thus, resulting to wounds or skin breakouts. Neurodermatitis can occur on different parts of the body especially on the skin of the neck, wrists, forearms, legs or anal region.
Causes of Neurodermatitis
There is no definite cause of Neurodermatitis. However, the itchiness of the skin may be triggered by an allergy, bug bite, or even a tight cloth. More often, Neurodermatitis is also associated to other skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.
Signs and Symptoms of Neurodermatitis
A person with Neurodermatitis may develop the following symptoms:
- Itchy skin patches
- Dry and scaly texture on the affected skin
- Affected skin appears red or darker than the normal skin
Cannabis Treatment for Neurodermatitis
The usual treatment for neurodermatitis is the use of topical steroid creams and ointments. You can have your dermatologist prescribed it for you or you can just buy some over the counter. However, modern medicine is not paying more attention on what Cannabis could to the medical world.
We are all probably aware how our ancestors use medical marijuana in treating several diseases many centuries ago. But we have slowly forgot about it when we focused more on the health risks of overdosing of Cannabis could possibly cause us.
However, with many states in America that have legalized the use of medical marijuana, isn’t it already high time to become mature and be more accepting on the wonders it could bring to our health? In fact, there are already medical companies that have developed Cannabinoid eczema cream to treat skin conditions.
Many mothers in certain places are also using CBD oil for eczema in babies. They grow their own Cannabis and process their own CBD oil to make sure that the medications they are using are free from contaminants and other harmful substances. If you are living in areas in America where Cannabis is legalized, then you can grow your own Cannabis too. As long as you have enough space for growing and you have a good Cannabis processing equipment, then you can certainly process a CBD for eczema and psoriasis as well as other types of Neurodermatitis.
