Lichen simplex chronicus is a chronic yet benign condition. The treatment is actually quite simple: stop scratching!!!! But of course, it is hard to do. 😵 Many times patients get frustrated and scared because the chronicity and the way the lesion looks… As a dermatologist, I’ve learned that thorough history taking, skin punch biopsy and a tender understanding of what your patient is going through can help you build a good relationship with them.
