Our expert says:
A dermatome is a localized area of skin that is has its sensation via a single nerve from a single nerve root of the spinal cord.
It is important to find the cause of the problem which can only be assessed through analysis of symptoms, full medical history and appropriate examination. There are many body systems to consider, so consult your G.P who may refer you to another specialist such as a neurologist.
Failing that see your local osteopath. For more information on osteopathy visit www.osteogoodhealth.com
