Sorry but I need a little more information to give you a proper answer. Is this lichen simplex chronicus and if so has it been diagnosed by a dermatologist?

OK and we can continue after this if you'd like. Lichen simplex chronicus is also know as neurodermatitis and it may not have a specific cause. It can be a type of allergic dermatitis sometimes. The treatment involves cortisone cream and antihistamines for the itching since scratching the area may worsen the problem
