Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. It is looking as prurigo nodularis, an itchy condition which keeps recurring. There is also a bit of bacterial infection. Take some oral antibiotic and apply antibiotic cream. once the infection is under control, go for intra lesion steroid injection. This will help in permanent cure. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
