New Page: Dermatitis Artefacta or Factitial Dermatitis

Dermatitis Artefacta means that somebody has injured their own skin, by any method. They may injure their skin by scratching it, with their fingernails or a knife or other sharp instrument; burning it with fire such as cigarettes, matches, or candles; burning it with caustic chemicals, such as bleach. They may or may not be aware that they caused the damage themselves, but they typically deny having intentionally inflicted the injury. New Page, 2-25-05. ISN.
