Factitial Dermatitis

definition

Self-inflicted lesions of the skin, which vary widely in their morphology and distribution. The lesions are in sites readily accessible to the patient's hands. Individual lesions are often bizarre with irregular outlines. The methods used to injure the skin include deep excoriations with a sharp instrument, scarification with a knife, the application of caustic chemicals and burning, sometimes with a cigarette. Elastic bands may be used to produce oedema.
