Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra is a benign condition that, while somewhat common among African Americans can be cause for cosmetic concern. The exact cause of dermatosis papulosa nigra is not known, however, genetic predisposition is suspected. It is more common among women than men and typically first shows during adolescence. For individuals afflicted with the condition, the number and size of individual lesions on the skin tends to increase with age.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra treatment involves the use of an electrical device called a hyfrecator to generate heat. This heat from the device causes the temperature of the target tissue to increase to a point at which the cells within the tissue can no longer survive.
