What is prurigo nodularis?

Prurigo nodularis is an almost unexplored disease that always occurs in conjunction with persistent itching (technical term: pruritus). The constant and permanent scratching on initially unchanged skin initially inhibits the itching, but damages the skin in the long term and leads to skin changes in some patients.
