Chapter 8. Atopic Dermatitis and Its Analogues (lichen simplex chronicus, prurigo nodularis, picker’s nodules, and erosions and ulcerations secondary to excoriation) | Chondrodermatitis Nodularis Helicis

Definition

A condition of persons of any age, but particularly children with a genetic proclivity for allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis, and allergic asthma. Intense pruritus induces patients to rub the skin intensely and to scratch furiously, the resultant factitious lesions being erythematous, often scaly, macules, patches, papules, and plaques that tend to become lichenified, eroded, ulcerated, and crusted.
