Dermatologist Dr. Raghuveer Murki's  Response
hi itching over the legs ,swelling and pain can lead to diagnosis of prurigo nodularis. basic pathology behind this condition is xerosis of the skin this causes itching which inturn causes papules-nodules.avoid food like wheat,eggs ryes and oats.go for routine lab investigations like cbp,cue esr and so on.
It can be cured by atarax 25 mg in the night,broad spectrum antibiotic and short course of wysolone strating with 30 mg tapering to 10 mg within 15 days.apply a moisteriser regularly and use propysalic ointment over the lesions and there are studies of using thaldomide in prurigo nodularis
