Prurigo nodularis is a chronic skin condition characterized by severely pruritic nodules that cause a profound negative impact on quality of life. The second article in this 2-part continuing medical education series focuses on reviewing the pathogenesis of prurigo nodularis and exploring management algorithms for this condition. In addition, we discuss some emerging and novel therapies for treating prurigo nodularis. The first article in this 2-part series describes the broader epidemiology, patient demographics, physical examination findings, and symptoms to aid in the timely recognition and diagnosis of prurigo nodularis.
