Sometimes neurodermatitis affects genital areas, such as the vulva or scrotum.
The itchiness tends to come and go. It may be most noticeable when you're at rest — watching TV
or sleeping, for example — and disappear when you're active. Anxiety or stress can make the itchiness worse. Eventually you may scratch simply out of habit.
The affected patches of skin often have a leathery or scaly texture. The patches may be raw, red or darker than the rest of your skin.
