Pruritus (itch)

Pruritus and itch are synonymous terms. Pruritus is defined as an unpleasant sensation on the skin that provokes the desire to rub or scratch the area to obtain relief.

Pruritus can cause discomfort and frustration; in severe cases it can lead to disturbed sleep, anxiety and depression.

Constant scratching to obtain relief can damage the skin (excoriation, lichenification) and reduce its effectiveness as a major protective barrier.
