Louisville, Kentucky This study was performed in the dermatology outpatient clinic of the medical faculty of Celal Bayar University, Manisa, Turkey. We enrolled 89 female participants, including 43 patients with neurodermatitis who were consecutively admitted to the dermatology department and 46 healthy, sexually active volunteers as a control group. All participants were married and reported that they had only 1 sexual partner. The study was approved by our institution. All participants volunteered to participate in this study and gave informed consent after the objectives and methods of the study were explained. Also known as neurodermatitis, lichen simplex chronicus is a localized pruritic eruption that results from chronic scratching and rubbing, eventuating in a scratch–itch–scratch cycle. Clinically, lesions appear erythematous or hyperpigmented, lichenified and scaly. High-potency topical steroids are often required to break the cycle. Steroid-impregnated tape, such as flurandrenolide (Cordran), applied at bedtime or after bathing and left in place for up to12 hours, also protects the lesions from being scratched. When symptoms improve, the potency of the steroid and the frequency of use can be reduced. Topical doxepin relieves pruritus and also helps break the cycle, but systemic absorption and drowsiness sometimes limit its use. If applicable, lesions can be covered with dressings, such as an Unna boot, to prevent the patient from scratching. More nodular lesions are termed prurigo nodularis, or picker’s nodules.
