It's itchy... SOS!
Pruritic is the scientific term used to describe what is commonly known as itch. Everything starts in the skin where a nervous signal is activated by biological mediators, that trigger skin irritation and inflammatory reaction. Scratching is the natural answer to this signal, often irrepressible that result in deteriorating the skin barrier. These lesions of the epidermis increase the risk of infectious agents or allergen that worsen the inflammation. This is the reason why scratching is the wrong answer to itch, despite the intense desire!
