Lichen simplex chronicus (LSC) is a chronic, pruritic, inflammatory skin condition that occurs in about 3 to 7.1% of the population. Topical corticosteroids like clobetasol propionate 0.05% ointment, are the first-line treatment for acute pruritus associated with inflammatory skin diseases like LSC.
