In brief: Neurodermatitis

It is not a serious skin problem but to break itch-scratch cycle is challanging.
Apply otc hydrocortizone cream and take otc non-drowsy antihistamin tablet by mouth. See your doctor if it does not go away in a week. If you have stress or anxiety that needs to be taken under control sometimes with medication to prevent itching.
