Hello,

It may be prurigo simplex. Kindly consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. Oral steroid in tapering dose, antihistaminics, and local steroid cream might improve the condition.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel
