Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra treatment in shrewsbury

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra are harmless skin tag-like lesions that develop on facial skin in patients with darker skin. Sometimes they may extend to the neck and even the chest. They are often found in groups and are small in size, ranging from 1-5mm in diameter. They are smooth and can feel firm to the touch but may become rough looking over time. Sometimes these bumps can have small flaps which make them resemble skin tags.

The prevalence of dermatosis papulosa nigra usually begins in adolescence, and with age, the bumps tend to grow bigger and increase in number. There is a genetic cause of dermatosis papulosa nigra, with 40-50% of patients having a family history of the condition. The cause of this condition is believed to be due to a defect in the hair follicle.

There are no negative symptoms to having this condition, however they are often removed due to cosmetic reasons as some patients can find them unsightly. Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra can be effectively treated using the carbon dioxide laser. The procedure is safe if performed by an adequately trained laser expert.
