I just received this diagnosis too, and I think the doctor is off (her rocker). She didn't even look at my skin, unless you count her standing 5ft away.

  • Jakki,Lichen Simplex Chronicus does not go away by itself. It can be stopped however. The key is that YOU have to break the itch cycle. The irony of Lichen Simplex Chronicus is itching only causes you to itch worse. You do have a lot of options available to help you break the itch cycle. Follow the link below for some info on treatments.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/neurodermatitis/DS00712/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugsLichen Simplex Chronicus does not have any body aches or pains associated with it other than the irritated area itself. You should see a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis and to rule out any other skin conditions that might underly the itchiness.

It will go away on it's own in due time. Sometimes within a month or so but can last as long as 6 to 12 months. I use benedryl spray to help stop the itch.
