The explanations of the psychosomatic dermatological symptoms are based on the dysfunction of the emotional and autonomic nervous system. In the first instance the dermatological symptoms of psychic origin are examined by the general practitioner, than the dermatologist and finally after negative findings--the psychiatrist. Behind the non-improving, itching and scratched eczema sometimes was found either Ekbom-syndrome (often diagnosed as gerontological delusions of parasitosis) or therapy-resistant allergy (which conceals depression). The authors present condensed case--stories (about delusions of parasitosis and allergic syndromes) proving the excellent results achieved using citalopram and in the case of Ekbom-syndrome--risperidone therapy.
