      Granuloma Annulare

      What is granuloma annulare?

      Granuloma annulare is a chronic skin condition characterized by small, raised bumps that form a ring with a normal or sunken center. The cause of granuloma annulare is unknown.

      How is granuloma annulare diagnosed?

      In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnosis is usually confirmed with a skin biopsy (removing a small sample of tissue for examination under a microscope).

      Treatment for granuloma annulare:


      Specific treatment for granuloma annulare will be determined by your physician based on:

          * your age, overall health, and medical history
          * extent of the condition
          * your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
          * expectations for the course of the condition
          * your opinion or preference

       
      Granuloma annulare usually clears up by itself. Treatment may include corticosteroid treatments (cream, tape, or injections).
