Prurigo nodularis is a rare skin disease, whose cause is unknown. The name of this disease is derived from two different words, ‘prurigo’ and ‘nodularis’ which mean – itching, and nodules respectively. In this disease condition, the skin develops itchy nodules. While the cause of the disease remains unknown, Prurigo is believed to be an autoimmune disease. Intense itching, which is often unbearable, is the major symptom of Prurigo nodularis. Out of all the medical systems, homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis is the best and sustainable improvement in the condition.
Signs and Symptoms of Prurigo Nodularis
For an effective treatment for Prurigo nodularis in Homeopathy, it’s important to observe the signs and symptoms of the disease, to rule out any chances of any other disease with similar symptoms. The main symptoms of the disease are seen on the forearms, legs, and neck. It can affect other parts of the body, as well. Homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis effectively treats the symptoms. Prurigo nodularis is characterized by multiple nodule-like skin lesions which usually have tiny open wounds, caused by intense itching. The nodules are found in groups, which can be a few to hundreds in number. These appear as small, red, and itchy bumps, which are somewhere between a few centimeters to about half an inch. The newest of the wounds caused due to the continuous scratching develop crusting and scaling which turn darker, and pale with time.
The skin between the nodules is usually found to be dry, and the person continues scratching the skin due to continuous and intense itching and secondary infections in the wounds may develop. Due to repetitive scratching, picking, and rubbing, the skin undergoes lichenification, that is, nodular thickening of the skin, hyperkeratosis, and hyperpigmentation.
Even when the itching is relieved with medicines, scabbed, crusted, scaly and unhealed lesions are found all over the affected area. While the old nodules regress, leaving scars, new nodules keep on appearing. Conventional medicines remain ineffective, while homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis effectively treats the condition. The disease may run through a very long time, which can eventually cause stress and depression in the person. Though the disease is stubborn and long-lasting, homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis is an effective and reliable option.
Causes of Prurigo Nodularis
Autoimmunity is considered to be the culprit behind Prurigo nodularis, and the exact cause remains a mystery, to date. Genetics may also contribute to the manifestation of this disease in a patient. Homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis and other autoimmune diseases is highly efficacious.
Many patients and/or their family members may have a history of atopic dermatitis, or eczema, asthma, hay fever, and some allergic disorders. The disease, sometimes, is also associated with internal organ diseases like kidney failure, iron deficiency anemia, or metabolic disorders, like intolerance to proteins (gluten enteropathy), and other diseases, like psoriasis, lichen planus, HIV, etc.
Emotional stress is also found to trigger or maintain the disease, in many individuals.
Despite the variety and complexity of the causes, the treatment for prurigo nodularis in homeopathy is possible and highly successful.
What is the Diagnosis of Prurigo Nodularis?
Timely intervention by an experienced Homeopathy and a dedicated homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis can save you lots of money, time and suffering.

Sometimes, other skin diseases like Lichen Planus, Psoriasis, and Eczema may exhibit similar symptoms, hence a careful examination by an experienced healthcare professional is required. A supportive test like a biopsy of the skin fragments from the affected part may confirm or reject the presence of Prurigo nodularis, which can aid in effective homeopathy treatment for prurigo nodularis.

Other confirmatory tests for Prurigo are:
1. Blood-test: A blood test for full blood count, can be helpful in confirming the disease.
2. Kidney function test.
3. Liver function test, and
4. Thyroid function test.
