A dermatonoma is a common overgrowth of fibrous tissue in the dermis of unknown etiology. It usually appears during middle age, more often in women, anywhere on the body, with the main sites of detection being the legs and arms. It is asymptomatic but may occasionally be accompanied by itching. It is a small pink to brown nodule located just below the surface but within the skin.
No treatment is required, except when there is doubt in the diagnosis. Various treatment suggestions are:
* Intralesional corticosteroid injections
* Laser photocoagulation
* Photothermal destruction laser
* Surgical removal
Dermatitis is not dangerous.
