Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a chronic inflammatory skin ailment characterized by very itchy, stiff, and frequently painful nodules on the skin. PN usually begins with very itchy skin, which may be widespread or localized. The itch is so strong that you can’t stop scratching and rubbing, which produces even more inflammation and irritation. After around six weeks, when the scratching has occurred, hard bumps form.
Furthermore, prurigo nodularis is neither inherited nor communicable. It affects women and men equally, while statistics on how many individuals are afflicted by the illness are lacking. It is frequently related to underlying problems that produce itchy skin, like insect bites or atopic dermatitis. It may also impact persons who have an underlying condition.
