2. What does Prurigo Nodularis Look Like?

When a person develops prurigo nodularis, they will begin to see hard bumps on the skin—often on the arms and legs—generally less than two centimeters in diameter. Darker than the surrounding skin, the bumps appear rough and thickened, sometimes with overlying scabs. They feel tender, but crusty.
