Chronic pruritus is reported to occur in 87-100% of AD patients and often affecting patientís quality of life. Management of chronic pruritus with antihistamines in AD is often ineffective, thus different pruritogens are considered to undergone the histamine-independent itch pathway.

Key words: Chronic pruritus, atopic dermatitis, histamine-dependent, histamine-independent pathway
