Nodular prurigo. Nodular prurigo is a skin condition characterised by very itchy firm lumps. It is the most severe form of prurigo. It is not known why these lumps appear. It is also called ‘prurigo nodularis’. Nodular prurigo is very difficult to treat effectively. It is uncertain whether scratching leads to the nodules or if the nodules appear before they are scratched. The reason for the nodules, the inflammation and the increased activity and size of nerves in the skin is under investigation but remains unknown.
