Prurigo nodularis is an intensely pruritic disorder in which chronic scratching and rubbing lead to the formation of eroded and excoriated skin nodules that may become generalized. Therapy for prurigo nodularis is notoriously difficult, and relief of pruritus and clearing of the skin lesions is exceedingly difficult to achieve.
