The German Society for Allergy and Skin Care states that nodular prurigo (Prurigo nodularis) is a skin disease, a chronic inflammation of the skin.
Symptoms of nodular pruritus
The association explains that symptoms of nodular itching are severe, persistently itchy, red nodules that appear on the surface of the skin, especially on the body, arms, and legs, and range in size from a few millimeters to 3 centimeters.
Continuous intense itching prompts the patient to scratch the itchy areas, causing lesions to appear on the surface of the skin, which turn into scars, which distort the appearance of the skin.
Causes of nodular itching
The association pointed out that the causes of “nodular pruritus” are not yet known precisely, but doctors suspect a regulatory disorder in the nervous and immune systems or an overreaction of the immune system.
“Nodular itching” may also be due to neurodermatitis or psoriasis, and may indicate diabetes, thyroid disease, or kidney disease. Such as: kidney failure or kidney failure.
In worse cases, “nodular itching” may indicate cancer, the association noted.
