  Irritation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Irritation, in biology and physiology, is a state of inflammation or painful reaction to allergy or cell-lining damage.
In more basic organisms, assigning irritation the status of pain is the perception of the being stimulated - which is not observable although it may be shared (see gate control theory of pain).
Irritation is apparently the only universal sense shared by even single-celled creatures.

They are valuable as a blood cleanser but exercise a strong diuretic action, consequently they should be used in moderation, particularly by those having trouble with their kidneys.

 Is it Irritation or a Reaction?
Signs of irritation include burning, redness, skin flaking, or actual peeling of portions of the skin and may be caused by using a concentration that is too high (i.e., Glycolic, Tretinoin, etc.), using too much of a product, or applying a product too frequently.
Irritation is usually noted during the course of applying topical treatments.
Irritation can be normal; however, if the irritation is too intense, the skin care program may be too aggressive for your skin, or skin that has not been properly conditioned.

 A Practical Guide to ISO 10993-10: Irritation (MDDI archive, Jun 98)
In general terms, such irritation is a local tissue response characterized by the usual signs of inflammation—redness and swelling—and sometimes accompanied by heat and pain (Figure 1).
With regard to irritation testing, the ISO standard defines irritation as a "localized inflammatory response to single, repeated, or continuous application of the test substance, without involvement of an immunological mechanism." ISO 10993-10 also proposes a four-tier approach to assessing the potential of a material to cause irritation.
In addition to the intracutaneous, primary skin, and ocular irritation tests, oral, rectal, penile, and vaginal irritation tests are described in annex D of the standard as complements to, not replacements for, the primary tests.

It is uncommon for shoulder pain to be caused by nerve irritation.
Nerve root irritation is when some structure puts pressure upon the nerve root either in the form of a tumor, a fracture, arthritis, a congenital deformation, or herniated disc, a stenotic canal (narrowed spinal canal) or several other diagnoses.
The diagnosis is made through a neurologic exam and confirmed through the use of an MRI (magnetic resonance image), EMG (electromyography), a discogram (when normal saline is injected into a disc to expand it and determine if this recreates pain) or CT myelogram.

 eMedicine - Medial Synovial Plica Irritation : Article by Robert F LaPrade
No exact numbers on the incidence of patients with an irritated synovial plica are available; however, it is estimated that approximately 50% of patients who present with knee pain to a physician's office have some irritation of their patellofemoral joint.
The examiner should ascertain whether this pain is due to him or her palpating this well-innervated area of the synovium or if it is the type of pain that the patient experiences with activities that is being produced by the examiner.
Once a patient has recovered from their plical irritation, they need to recognize that they are very likely to be at risk for a recurrence of symptoms if they do not participate in a maintenance rehabilitation program.
