What is Neurotic Excoriation?

Neurotic (Psychogenic) excoriation is a medical term used by physicians to refer to repetitive scratching with no known physical pathology. The behavior manifests on the skin as “clean, linear erosions, scabs, and scars…similar in size and shape…grouped on easily accessible body sites.” The most common areas affected by neurotic excoriation include the legs, arms, shoulders, upper back, neck, and face.
